Based on the incredible true story, Pam &
Tommy tackles a major landmark in the early days of the
Internet: the leak of Pamela Anderson's (Lily James) and Tommy
Lee's (Sebastian Stan) sex tape. Co-showrunner D.V. DeVincentis
discusses what surprised him the most while researching the
backstory of the case: "Something that continued to come up was...
how well [Pamela] dealt with it, considering she's obviously very
upset by it. I would have completely lost my mind, and she really
kept it together. That was surprising to me - the inner strength of
this person that is most often not given a lot of credit."
Co-showrunner Robert D. Siegel goes on to share the amount of care that ultimately went into writing Pamela's character: "We were both very, very protective of the character; she's ultimately the hero of the show. There are times during the show when [Rand Gauthier and Tommy] are the protagonists, and then there are times they're also the bad guys.... but we're really with Pam the whole way. It's kind of a love letter to her in a sense."
Pam & Tommy is now available to stream on Hulu.
