There will be no holding back for Pamela Anderson. In Pamela, A Love Story, viewers are given an unfiltered account of the life of one of Hollywood's most infamous stars. Jessica Hargrave, Julia Nottingham, and Brandon Thomas Lee, Anderson's oldest son, will produce Pamela, a love story, which is scheduled to premiere on January 31. In this documentary, Anderson will be profiled as "one of the world's most famous blonde bombshells," and the path of her career from a small-town girl to "an international sex symbol, actress, activist, tape, and doting mother." In a statement made by Netflix when Pamela, a love story directed by Ryan White (Ask Dr. Ruth, The Keepers), was first announced, Netflix said it had been in development for several years and would feature the pop culture icon setting the record straight as she reflected on her career and personal journey. Anderson included a note with a kiss print in the original announcement, which was published on social media, that read, "My life, filled with a thousand imperfections, a million misperceptions. Lost, wild, wicked, and nothing to live up to. I can only surprise you. Not a victim, but a survivor -- alive to tell her true story."
