Sebastian Stan is trading the MCU life for that of Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee in Hulu's biographical series based on his relationship with Pamela Anderson.

It's working title is Pam & Tommy, and finds director Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya) calling the shots across eight episodes.

Deadline also reports that Mamma Mia actress Lily James will be Pamela, and Seth Rogen has joined the cast as the guy who stole the couple's sex tape back in 1995 (as well as a producer through Point Grey).

Pamela and Tommy's NSFW scandal will play a huge role in the drama here, but the story itself will take aim at the couple's whirlwind romance too, which began with them tying the knot after knowing each other for just four days.

Following the tape's release, the Playboy icon sued video distribution company Internet Entertainment Group, while the Lee family entered into a confidential settlement deal instead – making the celebrity action available for subscribers to its websites.

For now, fans of Sebastian and Lily should seek out the pair in two of Netflix's original movies released earlier this year: The Devil All the Time and Rebecca.

Pam & Tommy begins production next spring.
