Pamela: A Love Story (documentary film)

Netflix

An intimate and humanising portrait of one of the world’s most famous blonde bombshells, Pamela, a Love Story follows the trajectory of Pamela Anderson’s life and career from small town girl to international sex symbol, actress, activist and mother.

The Baywatch actress, who became one of the most recognisable stars on the planet in the ‘90s, was the subject of the TV drama Pam & Tommy in early 2022. However, Anderson didn’t consent to the series and at the time refused to comment on the show, which focused on the traumatic story of how her home movies made with then husband Tommy Lee were stolen and distributed.

Now Anderson is ready to tell her life story on her own terms, and in this documentary film, responds to Pam & Tommy and discussing how she felt about having the traumatic experience brought back into the public eye.

Watch Pamela, a Love Story on Netflix on 31 January
