Documentary about Pamela Anderson coming to Netflix


Pamela Anderson is telling her story in a new documentary about her life, set to air on Netflix.  The documentary film — dubbed the “definitive documentary about the pop culture icon” — has been in the making for several years.  A Netflix statement said the documentary film will provide “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.”

Netflix also posted on Twitter: “Pamela Anderson is ready to tell her story in a new documentary. The film, which has been in the making for several years, will feature the pop culture icon setting the record straight as she looks back on her professional path and her personal journey.”  The post also included a picture  of a handwritten note, written by Anderson on Netflix letterhead, which reads: “My life/ A thousand imperfections/ A million misperceptions/ 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.”

The yet-to-be-titled film is directed by Ryan White (“The Keepers,” “Ask Dr. Ruth”), and features exclusive access to Anderson, as well as archival footage and her personal journals.  Anderson’s son Brandon Thomas Lee, who serves as a producer on the project, reposted his mother’s note on his Instagram story, emphasizing the phrase, “The real story”  — as did Anderson’s younger son, Dylan Jagger Lee.
