Biopic Series ‘Pam & Tommy’ Available on DVD Aug. 9

The biopic series “Pam & Tommy” arrives Aug. 9 on DVD from Lionsgate.

The series is streaming on Hulu.

Following the scandalous drama that set the internet down a new path, “Pam & Tommy” is based on the incredible true story of the Pamela Anderson (Lily James, Cinderella, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) and Tommy Lee (Sebastian Stan, Captain America: The Winter Solider) sex tape. Stolen from the couple’s home by a disgruntled contractor (Seth Rogen, This Is the End, Superbad, Pineapple Express), the video went from underground bootleg/VHS curiosity to full-blown cultural obsession when it hit the Web in 1997. A love story, crime caper, and cautionary tale rolled into one, the eight-part original limited series explores the intersection of privacy, technology and celebrity, tracing the origins of our current reality-TV era to a stolen tape seen by millions but meant to have an audience of just two.

The series also stars Nick Offerman (“The Great North,” “Parks and Recreation”) and Taylor Schilling (The Lucky One, “Orange Is the New Black”).

Netflix to Stream Documentary Feature on Pamela Anderson

A documentary feature about pop culture icon Pamela Anderson is heading to Netflix.

The film, which has been in the making for several years, will feature exclusive access to Anderson and never-before-seen archival footage and personal journals.

Directed by Ryan White (The Keepers, Ask Dr. Ruth), it’s an intimate portrait embedded in the life of Anderson as she looks back at her professional and personal path and prepares for the next steps on her journey, according to Netflix.

A note from Anderson released by Netflix reads, “My life, a thousand imperfections, a million misperceptions, wicked, wild and lost, nothing to live up to — I can only surprise you — not a victim, but a survivor and alive to tell the real story.”
