The 90s are back – again – in a new teaser for “Pam and Tommy,” the upcoming miniseries on Hulu, which explores the unstable relationship between Rescuers Malibu star Pamela Anderson and musician Tommy Lee.
Former Playboy cover girl and drummer Mötley Crüe are played by the completely transformed Lily James (Downton Abbey, Cinderella) and Sebastian Stan (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier), respectively.
Released Thursday, the new trailer opens with voyeur Seth Rogen, whose character steals the couple’s infamous sex tape from their home, as well as Nick Offerman. Taylor Schilling, Andrew Dyce Clay, Pepi Sonuga, Spencer Granenese and Mozhan Marno also starred.
Directed by Craig Gillespie (“I, Tonya”) and billed as a comedy, the teaser already highlights the aggressive nature of the scandal that shocks Anderson in the teaser, but appears to be a victory for Lee.
“This tape can be distributed every second,” says James Anderson in the video.
“[It’s] it doesn’t really matter to me. I’m just like you on this tape, ”Lee rationalizes.
“No. You’re not like me,” she replies muffled.
The characters’ reactions seem to reflect how Anderson and Lee, whose whirlwind romance about someone’s tumultuous history was debated in the tabloids of the 1990s, dealt with the aftermath.
“I know Sebastian, he plays me. From what he told me, it’s a really beautiful story, ”Lee told Entertainment Tonight in September. “I think a lot of people will think this is one thing, but it’s really about privacy and how it all went crazy back then. Now the laws are different.
“The story is really cool. What actually happened did not happen, but [Stan] tells me it’s pretty wild. I feel like it was forever ago. But it’s a great story and people need to know it. This is great. I am delighted “.
Anderson is clearly not happy.
While the “Barb Wire” star hasn’t spoken directly about the show, Sun (via the Daily Mail) has revealed that she thinks it’s a joke and a cheap fake of her life. Representatives for the actress did not immediately respond on Thursday to The Times’ request for comment.
Musician Courtney Love also defended her friend and publicly criticized the show and its stars in May, when the first photos of the project appeared.
“I find it pretty damn outrageous. My heart is worried about Pammy, which causes her even more difficult trauma. And shame on Lily James, whoever she is. #vile, “she wrote in a deleted Facebook post. She said the sex tape “completely” ruined Anderson’s life.
Anderson and Lee met in 1994, took a vacation together, and immediately got married in Cancun, Mexico. They later had two sons and separated in 1998 when their relationship ended when their record went online. Lee was later charged with spousal violence and child abuse and was sentenced to six months in prison.
The first three episodes of “Pam and Tommy” will premiere on February 2 on Hulu, followed by a weekly series of new episodes.
