Few couples in the 90s were bigger than Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. The tumultuous couple was a frequent fixture in the tabloids, and are often credited as the creators of the celebrity sex tape. Their volatile relationship was quickly beset by addiction and jealousy, with Lee serving six months in jail for spousal abuse. As prestige television continues to excavate 90s pop culture, it was only a matter of time before Pamela and Tommy’s marriage earned its own limited series.

The hair and make-up are absolutely transformative, especially for Lily James, who is unrecognizable. The series also stars Seth Rogen, Nick Offerman, Taylor Schilling, Andrew Dice Clay, Pepi Sonuga, Spencer Granese, and Mozhan Marnò. Rogen will play Rand Gauthier, the man who stole and sold the sex tape.
There’s no release date yet for the series yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
