The first trailer for Hulu’s Pam & Tommy miniseries can now be seen below.
“Based on the true f**king scandal – Pam & Tommy, starring Lily James, Sebastian Stan, and Seth Rogen premieres February 2nd, only on Hulu.”
Produced by Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Dave Franco and others and directed by I, Tonya and Cruella helmer Craig Gillespie, Hulu described Pam & Tommy as a “comedic limited series on the true story behind the release of the first ever viral video in history — the sex tape of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee.”
Lee and Anderson had videotaped their sexual activities while on vacation. The video was stolen in 1995, released on the Internet, and became a prime example of viral p*rnography. According to The Dirt, Lee claims that he was having work done at his house, and a person working at the house found the tape and sold it.
Anderson sued the video distribution company, Internet Entertainment Group. Ultimately, the couple entered into a confidential settlement agreement with IEG. Thereafter, the company began making the tape available to subscribers to its websites again, resulting in triple the normal traffic on the site.
