As the final episodes of the Hulu miniseries based on her marriage to Tommy Lee, Pam & Tommy, airs this month, Pamela Anderson is taking control of how her story is told — thanks to an upcoming documentary on Netflix.
Anderson announced the project on social media with a post of a note — handwritten on Netflix letterhead and sealed with a lipstick kiss: “My life/ A thousand imperfections/ A million misperceptions/ Wicked, wild and lost/ Nothing to live up to /I can only surprise you /Not a victim, but a survivor /And alive to tell the real story.”

Described by its logline 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,” the documentary film is expected to showcase exclusive access to the Canadian-born actress, as well as archival footage and her personal journals, according to Variety.
While the documentary was apparently in the works for a few years before being linked to Netflix, the announcement is well-timed as the Hulu series draws to a close. Anderson was not involved in the making of the latter, even though it has pushed Anderson (starring Lily James as Anderson) and her relationship with ex-husband Tommy Lee (portrayed by Sebastian Stan) back into the public spotlight.

The documentary’s release date and title are yet to be announced, but we can hope that the finished project — for which Anderson’s son Brandon Thomas Lee serves as a producer — will allow the star to set the record straight and tell the story of her own life, her way.
