Fans have been given a double helping of excitement after Hulu released new teaser pics and an official trailer for Lily James and Sebastian Stan’s upcoming series Pam and Tommy all in one afternoon – and we can’t wait.
With just a few weeks left before it airs, Pam & Tommy is already one of the most exciting shows in the pipeline for 2022.
The eight-parter looks to tell the story of Baywatch star Pamela Anderson (Lily James) and Motley Crue drummer, Tommy Lee (Sebastian Stan).
It explores the theft and circulation of the sex tape they made during their honeymoon, which was stolen from their home and then circulated online before the pair sued the distributor of the tape, Internet Entertainment Group.
The series, which drops in the UK on Disney Plus next month, was first teased last summer after snaps of Lily, 32, and Sebastian, 39 dressed as the titular characters were released.
They replicated the iconic picture of Pamela tugging on her husband’s nipple ring with her teeth in the first look at the show, with Sebastian getting tatted up for the role.
A teaser trailer subsequently dropped back in November, but now, further cast pictures and an official have been released of the show’s stars.
Earlier this afternoon, the show’s official Twitter account wrote: ‘The Greatest Love Story Ever Sold. @pamandtommy, starring Lily James, Sebastian Stan, and Seth Rogen.’
‘The Hulu Original Series premieres February 2,’ with a very juice trailer attached.
The new trailer starts off with Pamela in front of a legal team, followed by snippets of her at the height of her career, featuring on talk shows and Baywatch.
Asked about Tommy, she says: ‘I knew he was the drummer from the Motley Crue, I found him attractive, I still do,’ before saying she liked ‘his smile’.
As we move through the story, viewers see the pair recreate the iconic sex tape in racy scenes.
However, everything changes when Nick and Seth’s characters come into possession of the very private piece of material.
The pair work out how to distribute it via something called a website (how modern!) and Pamela is left mortified when a copy of the tape is left in her Baywatch dressing room.
The rest of the clip sees Pamela workout how to navigate the difficulties of having a sex tape out in the open, as well as her turbulent relationship with her husband.
Elsewhere, in the newly released snaps, Lily goes full on Baywatch as she poses in a signature red swimsuit, to get ready for her stint in the 90s show.
Seth Rogen and Nick Offerman also feature in the new photos, in character as Gauthier and Uncle Miltie, who infamously leaked the couple’s sex tape.
Other snaps show Lily in a cute pink vest with perfectly bouncy waves that we can’t help but be jealous of.
The remaining picture depicts Lily and Sebastian’s characters in the middle of a media storm.
The series will follow the iconic couple at the peak of their fame in the mid-90s, after they married less than a week after meeting in 1995.
Pamela, 53, and Tommy, 58 – who divorced in 1998 and share two kids – are not involved in the project.
Pam & Tommy lands on Hulu on February 2, 2022 and will be available to watch on Disney Plus for UK viewers.
