Hulu‘s set its sights on one of the most iconic celebrity scandals of the ’90s with its latest project, a series titled Pam & Tommy, Deadline reports. And you guessed it — it’s all about that infamous Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee sex tape. Who’s set to play the tabloid favorite couple? That would be Lily James, who will take on the role of the Baywatch actress, and Sebastian Stan, who will play the Mötley Crüe rocker.

Anderson and Lee married in 1995 after only knowing each other for four days, and that same year, a sex tape of the two recorded on their honeymoon was stolen from their home by Ron Gauthier, an electrician who’d been fired by the couple. By the time Anderson and Lee discovered that their tape had been distributed online and multiple copies had been sold, they filed a lawsuit, but Penthouse Magazine had already written about the video.

Eventually, Lee and Anderson struck a deal with the distribution company behind the tape, Internet Entertainment Group, and the tape was released on their website, where it caused a significant spike in online traffic. And so the celebrity sex tape phenomenon began, with Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian following suit years later.

According to Deadline, Seth Rogen is set to star alongside James and Stan as the man who stole Pamela and Tommy’s tape. Rogen will also produce the limited series with his Point Grey partner Evan Goldberg, with Dylan Sellers through Limelight and Sue Naegle and Megan Ellison at Annapurna also attached as producers. I, Tonya‘s Craig Gillespie will direct the series and  Rob Siegel will write.

The sex tape saga is sure to play a big part in the new Hulu project, but Pam & Tommy is also set to focus on the couple’s unconventional marriage and their relationship. While both Anderson and Lee are said to be aware of the series, they are not directly involved in production.
