It’s time Pamela Anderson speaks her truth. Having vowed to never watch the new buzzy Hulu mini-series Pam & Tommy, after the show was green-lit without Anderson’s approval or consent, the Baywatch babe is now taking control of the narrative. On Wednesday, Netflix announced that Anderson is “ready to tell her story” in a new documentary.
To be directed by Ryan White, the doc will include exclusive archival interviews and never-before-seen footage, as well as personal journal entries from Anderson. According to Netflix, the still-untitled feature which has been in the works for “several years,” will be “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.”
Posting the announcement on Twitter, the streaming service explained the film will “set the record straight” about misconceptions of the actress’ life. It also featured an image of a hand-written note from Anderson reading, “My life/ A thousand imperfections/ A million misconceptions/ 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,” signed and sealed with a kiss.
