Lily James gives an uncanny performance as Pamela Anderson in the first trailer for Pam & Tommy, a new TV series coming to Disney+ in early 2022.

Lily and her co-star Captain America: The Winter Soldier's Sebastian Stan, 39, transform into Pamela and her ex-husband, Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, in the eight-part drama about the release of the couple's infamous honeymoon sex tape.

The show also stars Seth Rogen, Nick Offerman and Taylor Schilling.

In the trailer, Seth's character, electrician Rand Gauthier is shown actually stealing a safe from Pam and Tommy's house, while Nick's character, adult film manager Uncle Miltie, sees dollar signs once he's watched the contents of the VHS tape.

Meanwhile, Lily struts her stuff as Pammy in her iconic red Baywatch swimsuit before she and Tommy become aware of the invasion of privacy that has occurred.

Pamela's mortified reaction is then shown, as she realises the world is about to see inside the couple's bedroom.

Hype for the series has been building since a photo was released of Mamma Mia star Lily, 32, bearing a striking resemblance to the Baywatch star.

Pam and Tommy married in 1995 after only knowing each other for 96 hours.

They were married for three years and share two sons together – Brandon Thomas (born in 1996) and Dylan Jagger (born in 1997).

At the time, Pamela Anderson was one of the most famous women in the world thanks to her role as lifeguard C.J. Parker on the globally popular Baywatch.

The upcoming biographical drama is the "outrageous untold story of the world’s first viral video".

Directed by I, Tonya's Craig Gillespie, the show follows the scandalous couple's whirlwind relationship.

It follows the recent success of other TV dramas exploring 1990s scandals, including the three American Crime Story dramas. These have so far explored the OJ Simpson and Gianni Versace cases and President Bill Clinton's impeachment after his affair with intern Monica Lewinsky.

Pam & Tommy launches on February 2 in the US, and is expected to arrive in the UK shortly after.
