2022 is getting a major dose of ’90s nostalgia with Hulu’s newest miniseries, Pam & Tommy. The series wants viewers to forget what they think they know about what happened on that honeymoon and the fallout that came when a certain home video made the rounds. The series is already generating major buzz — and let’s just remember that both Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee had nothing to do with the project — thanks to the stars’ amazing transformations and the team behind the camera, including Craig Gillespie, the man behind I, Tonya.
What is Pam & Tommy about?
While Anderson and Lee are still very much alive and still very much making headlines (maybe-weddings and having a child starring on MTV’s Hills reboot without ever having been on the original run are certainly attention-grabbing), the show will focus on the couple’s marriage, their sex tape, and the fallout that came with its release in the mid-’90s.
Deadline adds that the sex tape scandal is just one part of the show, reporting that the “whirlwind romance that started with them marrying after only knowing each other for 96 hours in 1995” is also a major arc.
Who stars in Pam & Tommy?
Lily James and Sebastian Stan star as the titular couple. James is probably most well-known for her role in Disney’s live-action remake of Cinderella (and a certain scandal that involved kissing Dominic West back in 2020). While Stan has plenty of credits to his IMDb page, including fan-favorites like Gossip Girl, viewers will recognize him as James “Bucky” Barnes, the metal-armed super soldier from Marvel’s slate of superhero epics and Disney+’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Who else is on the show?
In addition to Stan and James’s top billing, Seth Rogen, Nick Offerman, and Taylor Schilling round out the cast. Rogen plays Rand Gauthier, the electrician who steals the couple’s DIY sex tape. Offerman, best known for his work on Parks and Recreation, plays Uncle Miltie, the guy who ends up buying the tape and sharing it with the world. Schilling plays Gauthier’s wife, Erica.
Is there a trailer?
Hulu released a trailer in late 2021, which shows plenty of Stan and James in action — and, of course, Anderson’s iconic red Baywatch one-piece makes a cameo. It’s so steamy, in fact, that YouTube put the teaser trailer behind an age restriction alert. Click on, but you’ve been warned.
When can I watch Pam & Tommy?
The series premiere hits Hulu on February 2, 2022. The first three episodes are set to drop on the streamer the first day, with subsequent episodes coming each week. There are eight total.
