Last year, Pamela Anderson was the subject of the hit series Pam & Tommy on Disney Plus – and now the former Baywatch star is telling her story on her own terms in a brand new Netflix documentary.


Pamela, A Love Story arrives on the streamer on Tuesday 31st January 2023, and today viewers have been given a first look at the feature-length documentary with the release of a brand new trailer.

The trailer opens with Anderson discussing the sex tape that was the subject of the aforementioned Hulu series, as she explains "I blocked that sex tape out of my life in order to survive", and adding that she felt "sick" that it had re-entered the spotlight.

"I wanna take control of the narrative for the first time," she continues.

The trailer also includes footage from several interviews and clips of her being swarmed by paparazzi, while at one point she says in the voiceover: "I'm not the damsel in distress, I put myself in crazy situations... and survived them."
