Lily James’ scandalous Pam & Tommy series has a suitably wild new trailer

Here’s everything we know about Lily James’ new Hulu series, Pam And Tommy, including a brand new teaser and when it will be released. 

Earlier this year, when Hulu released those now-infamous first look photos of upcoming limited series Pam & Tommy, the internet went predictably wild for Lily James’s incredible transformation into actress Pamela Anderson that rendered her practically unrecognisable in the role. 

James stars as Anderson in the eight-part limited comedy series, based on the true story of the release of the first-ever viral video in history — the sex tape of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee (played by Sebastian Stan).

And now, following all the buzz and excitement around James’ new look, which saw her don a voluminous bleached blonde wig and array of tight-fitting outfits, we finally have a teaser trailer and official release date for the exciting series.

What is the plot of Pam & Tommy?

As the tagline reads: “Based on the true f**king scandal,” Pam & Tommy tells the story of the leaked sex tape  scandal featuring Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson and Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee that rocked the tabloids in the 1990s.

The trailer, which oozes rock’n’roll wildness, features a series of looks at James’ Anderson and Stan’s Lee, showing snapshots of their passionate and turbulent marriage. The footage also introduces Seth Rogen as Rand Gauthier, the man who stole and distributed the sex tape.

“Not a big deal to me? I’m on that tape, same as you,” Stan’s Lee says at one point in the trailer, discussing the urgency of retrieving the tape with his wife. “No, not like me you’re not,” James’ Anderson replies.

As reported in Deadline back in May, “The tape will play a major part in the series, [but] the story will also focus on their relationship, going back to their whirlwind romance that started with them marrying after only knowing each other for 96 hours in 1995.”

The series also stars Nick Offerman, Taylor Schilling, Andrew Dice Clay, Pepi Sonuga, Spencer Granese and Mozhan Marnò.

When will Pam & Tommy be available to watch?

While the series definitely looks to be worth the wait, the good news is that we don’t have too much longer to go. The limited series will premiere on Hulu on 2 February 2022.
