Hulu’s Pam & Tommy has been keeping Pamela Anderson‘s name in the Zeitgeist in a way that she doesn’t appreciate, as sources have said that the series is re-traumatizing her. Star, Lily James, reached out to Pamela ahead of playing her in the series alongside Sebastian Stan as Tommy Lee. But Pamela ignored Lily. Pamela hasn’t publicly said how she feels about Pam & Tommy but maybe she’ll let all her feelings be known in her Netflix documentary, which Deadline says is in the works.
Fresh off from divorcing her fourth husband, Pamela announced in a haiku-like Instagram post yesterday that her Netflix documentary is coming. Pamela is really elevating the iOS press release and went old school by writing a poem about Netflix stationary. Pamela writes:
A thousand imperfections
A million perceptions
Wicked, wild & lost
to live up to–
I can only surprise you–
Not a victim, but a survivor & alive to tell the real story.”
Pam’s doc will be directed by Ryan White who is behind the documentaries Ask Dr. Ruth and The Keepers. It’s been years in the making and will have exclusive access to Pamela and will show never-before-seen archival footage as well as passages from her personal journals. Pamela’s eldest son with Tommy Lee, Brandon Thomas Lee is also a producer on the doc. via Variety:
The film’s logline describes the project as “an intimate portrait embedded in the life of Pamela Anderson as she looks back at her professional and personal path and prepares for the next steps on her journey.”
White will produce the project with Jessica Hargrave under their Tripod Media banner, alongside Julia Nottingham for Dorothy St Pictures and Lee. Josh Braun serves as an executive producer.
If her journals are in it, expect some chapters on her One True Love, Julian Assange. In fact, I know that this is supposed to be about Pamela, but knowing her this is going to turn into a three-part docu-series on Julian. She Trojan Horsed her way into a Julian Assange PR piece with Netflix! Genius!
