Pamela Anderson will speak her truth. In March, Netflix first announced that the 55-year-old actress “is ready to tell her story in a new documentary,” and on Tuesday, the streaming service shared the doc’s release date along with some rare, candid photos of the star.
Pamela, a love story will premiere on Jan. 31, and is produced by Jessica Hargrave (Ask Dr. Ruth, The Keepers), Julia Nottingham (Kingdom of Us) and Anderson’s oldest son, 26-year-old Brandon Thomas Lee.
The doc promises to be an “intimate and humanizing portrait of one of the world’s most famous blonde bombshells,” and will follow the trajectory of Anderson’s “life and career from small town girl to international sex symbol, actress, activist and doting mother.”
In addition to the release date, new pics of Anderson show her at different stages of her life, including an image of her kissing one of her sons as a baby, another of her rehearsing in a dance studio, and yet another of her looking contemplative while on a beach.
When the project, directed by Ryan White (Ask Dr. Ruth, The Keepers), was first announced, Netflix said in a statement that Pamela, a love story “has been in the making for several years, and will feature the pop culture icon setting the record straight as she looks back on her professional path and her personal journey.”
