Where was 'Pam and Tommy' filmed?
The creators of Pam and Tommy made it fairly easy for themselves in terms of selecting filming locations, as the entirety of the real-life story took place in Los Angeles. Naturally, the entire show was also shot in Los Angeles, maintaining historical accuracy and allowing its stars to soak up the sunny southern California sun.
The locations utilized within Los Angeles for Pam and Tommy are varied, and align mostly with the places that actually played a role in the two stars's lives. Some of the locations used for the show within the city, per The Cinemaholic, include the Griffith Observatory, Venice Beach, the Sheats-Goldstein Residence, and Point Dume.
An unspecified Los Angeles church was also used to recreate Pamela and Tommy's famous wedding for one scene in the show.
Beyond that, star Seth Rogen shot a few of his scenes on Hollywood Boulevard, which is home to Los Angeles landmarks such as the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Hollywood Pacific Theatre, and Madame Tussaud's Hollywood.
The show also employed Los Angeles's internationally-renowned beachfront to recreate both Pamela's iconic red bathing suit scene from Baywatch, as well as the beachfront portion of her wedding.
Who stars in 'Pam and Tommy'?
To expertly recreate one of Hollywood's most famous love stories, creators of Pam and Tommy have tapped into a seriously impressive roster of actors. British actress Lily James, star of Just William, stars in Pam and Tommy as Pamela Anderson. Sebastian Stan of Winter Soldier fame was called on to stand beside her as Tommy Lee.
Aside from the show's two main stars, Taylor Schilling plays Erica Gauthier, Seth Rogen plays Rand Gauthier, and Nick Offerman plays Uncle Miltie. The show was developed by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, and despite being pretty much co-signed by Tommy, has received quite a bit of flack from Pamela.
