The eight-part series will focus on the Baywatch star's short-lived marriage to the Mötley Crüe drummer - and the rather lengthy battle she had to reclaim a very personal part of their relationship.  As per the official synopsis from Hulu: "The eight-episode comedic limited series tells the true story of the release of the first-ever viral video in history — the sex tape of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee."

However, while the tape will play a major part in the series, the story will also focus on Pam and Tommy's relationship going back to the whirlwind romance that started with them marrying after only knowing each other for four days in 1995 and their multi-million dollar court battle against those who stole and distributed the video.

When the first trailer for the series was released earlier this year, fans couldn't believe how uncannily similar to Pamela LilY looked with peroxide blonde hair and prosthetics on both her face and her body.

They wasted no time in taking to Twitter to praise both Lily and the hair and make-up team for transforming the Mamma Mia 2 star.
