Hulu’s Pam and Tommy is a comedy biographical drama series that revolves around the outrageous sex tape with Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson and all that drama that followed the leak. The first season of the series focuses on the devastating consequences the incident had for those involved. However, fans have not had enough of it yet. And they’re waiting for ‘The Greatest Love Story Ever Sold’ to continue in Pam And Tommy Season 2.
Did Pam and Tommy Really Sell Their Sex Tape?
After the premiere of Hulu’s Pam And Tommy, many fans are wondering if Pamela and Tommy Lee actually sold copies of their sex tape. The answer is yes! Pamela and Tommy transferred the publishing rights of their private tape to the Internet Entertainment Group, owned by Seth Warshavsky. After several lawsuits and arguments with companies like Penthouse, they believed that selling the rights to the online stream would prevent the tape from being sold in local stores. But they soon realized that’s how it works.
Lee and Pamela signed the right to five hours of streaming on IEG’s ClubLove website on November 7, 1997. However, on November 25, 1997, Warshavsky’s attorney Derek Newman drafted a deal for the band’s wide release. And the couple signed it. The tape grossed millions of dollars through internet sales and physical copies sold in stores. It is unclear whether the couple received compensation for surrendering their rights or later received a cut in income.
Is Pam and Tommy Season 2 Coming?
The first season of Hulu semi-biopic debuted on the streaming platform on February 2, 2022. The season finale will fall on March 9, 2022. As for the second season, it has the potential to be successful. Given how abruptly Season 1 ended with their split, Pam & Tommy Season 2 can focus on the fallout from the couple’s divorce.
However, in our opinion, like several fans, we also think that season 2 of Pam And Tommy should not be made. Pam & Tommy is a standalone limited series that chronicles the real events and effects of Lee and Anderson’s sex tape in sensitive detail. The series has ended where it should have ended. And making a second season can ruin the effects of the first season.
What did Sebastian Stan say about Pam and Tommy season 2?
Actor Sebastian Stan was recently featured in an interview with EW. Speaking about his latest show Pam and Tommy, the actor said: “I think we could always have explored it more and more deeply. You could have made eight more episodes, even further into the story. But I feel like We got there with the best of intentions. And we really tried. Given the time allotted, to do our best with what we’ve been given as actors.” Meanwhile, when asked about the show’s possible return with Pam And Tommy season 2, Stan replied by saying, “I don’t know. I’ll have to think about that. I’m actually not sure at this point.”
Where is Tommy now?
Pamela Anderson’s previous boyfriend and the co-controversial victim met and fell in love with someone else after he and Pamela broke up. This has not been included in the Pam & Tommy series so far. Tommy Lee greeted his wife, Brittany Furlan, on a joint birthday/Valentine’s Day in an Instagram post on Feb. 14. They have been married for three years.
It’s encouraging to see Lee found a long-term relationship after his reputation was tarnished by a previous one. His Instagram page also states that he now has a new album called Andro. This implies that his career has held up to a certain extent.
Is Rand Gauthier’s depiction inaccurate?
Seth Rogan plays Rand Gauthier, a former Tommy Lee contractor who ends up stealing and exposing the famous recording in the show. Gauthier is portrayed in the show as a meek, non-threatening and ultimately defeated man longing for a break.
Gauthier’s real life experiences are very different from what his admirers imagined when he was cast. Unlike Rogan’s portrait of an average-looking man, Gauthier was actually quite broad and handsome at the time. In this light, it’s more likely that he went out and reluctantly worked as an enforcer for a loan shark to repay the debt he owed as a result of the tape’s widespread sale.
