As well as exploring the couple’s 1995 marriage, which happened only 96 hours after they met, a major storyline in the Hulu show is said to be the furore around their leaked honeymoon sex tape.
The infamous sex tape was allegedly stolen from Pamela and Tommy’s home in 1995 and ended up being shared online.
As well as Lily and Sebastian, Seth Rogan is also thought to be joining cast as the man who stole the sex tape and will also be producing the eight-episode TV series.

Pamela sued the company that was distributing it, before entering into a confidential settlement with Internet Entertainment Group.
Insiders told Deadline that Pamela and Tommy are not involved in the Hulu project, but have been aware that it is happening since Lily was brought in to play the model.
In May last year, Pamela played down the video on Andy Cohen’s show and cheekily told him: ‘That was not a sex tape. That was a compilation of vacations that we were naked on.’
Pamela also revealed that she has a ‘great’ relationship with her rocker ex.
She said: ‘We don’t talk at all. It’s perfect. No, we do… my kids are happy and that’s all that matters. They have a relationship now, and that’s the best part.’
The actress and Tommy were married from 1995 to 1998 and share sons Brandon, 24, and Dylan, 22.
Pamela has also been married to Kid Rock from 2006 to 2007 and Rick Salomon from 2007 to 2008 as well as Jon Peters for 12 days in 2020.

Meanwhile, Lily has also hit the headlines with her own romantic scandals.
The actress has kept a low-profile since she became the subject of worldwide scrutiny when images emerged showing her and Dominic West enjoying a two-day vacation in Italy where they were seen riding on a scooter through Rome, and Dominic appeared to at one point lean over and kiss Lily’s neck.
A source told MailOnline the thespians spent two nights in a suite at the top Hotel De La Ville with a panoramic view over the city and just at two minutes walk from the Spanish steps.

Just days later, Dominic defiantly defended his marriage to wife Catherine FitzGerald, with the pair staging a photo opportunity outside their Wiltshire home and telling reporters: ‘Our marriage is strong and we’re very much still together.’
Since then, it has been revealed that Catherine has banned Dominic from speaking to Lily as part of a peace deal struck between the couple during a lockdown escape to trendy island destination Lamu in Kenya.
The actor, 51, finally won forgiveness for the infamous photographs that showed him flirting outrageously with 32-year-old Lily while on a secret trip to Rome.
The Wests even discussed renewing their wedding vows to rebuild their ten-year marriage, The Mail on Sunday reported.

The couple were joined on Lamu – described by Conde Nast Traveller magazine as loved by ‘wastrels, writers and royals’ – by a group of friends who included beauty entrepreneur Charlotte Tilbury and Alan Yentob, the BBC’s former creative director.
‘The idea of remarrying was talked about,’ says a friend of the couple.
‘Nothing was decided, or has been yet, but Catherine brought up the idea and it was much discussed. It shows how far things have come since those photographs.’
Meanwhile, TV and film star Lily previously dated The Crown star Matt Smith, 38, on and off for five years, with the relationship said to be over just weeks before she was pictured with Dominic.
The brunette has raised eyebrows in the past by forging close friendships with her co-stars in recent productions – Armie Hammer in Rebecca and Dominic in BBC drama The Pursuit Of Love.
Lily has also been hit with claims that she grew close to her married Rebecca co-star Armie, with their alleged off-camera chemistry prompting gossip on the set that they had become an item.
After the emergence of the lunch images, the stage star pulled out of a series of promotional appearances to plug Rebecca and has remained silent on the scandal ever since.
