Lily James is set to portray Baywatch star Pamela Anderson in a new TV series about her relationship with rock star Tommy Lee.

The eight-part Hulu drama will include the sex tape scandal of 1995, when a video shot on their honeymoon was stolen and released to the public.

Hollywood website Deadline report that alongside the British actress, US star Sebastian Stan will play Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.

Seth Rogan is also believed to be lined up to play the man who distributed the sex tape, igniting a furious debate over celebrity privacy rights.

The former Playboy model and rock star famously wed after knowing each other for just 96 hours.

The theft of their honeymoon VHS recording led to Anderson suing the video distribution company Internet Entertainment Group (IEG).

Lee later reached an agreement with IEG, with the company capitalising on the publicity and making it available online to their subscribers.

While Anderson and Lee are not directly involved in the production, they are said to be aware it is being made.

The couple divorced in 1998 after three years of marriage, during which time they were regulars on the celebrity scene, dominating tabloid headlines.

Deadline say the show’s working title is Pam & Tommy, and that it will be directed by I, Tonya filmmaker Tom Gillespie.

Lily James will next appear in Netflix film The Dig opposite Carey Mulligan, while Stan will reprise his role of the Winter Soldier in the Marvel TV spin off The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Both will air in 2021.

Pam & Tommy is due to begin filming in spring 2021.
