Pamela Anderson will star in a “artistically rich and visually stunning series” on E!

Despite denying that she was doing an E! reality series back in December, Pamela Anderson will indeed star in a reality series for the network.

This summer, E! will air Pamela, “an observational documentary series that goes inside the life of Pamela Anderson,” according to the network, which notes that it “will focus on Pam as an individual and will not feature her kids.” Back in December, she said she was considering a show that followed the creation of a stage production, and implied that consideration was in the past.

E! says that the new series will focus on all of Pamela except her chest, as “[v]iewers will get to know the real woman behind the famous breasts and follow Pam as she tries to juggle love, career and peace of mind. Going beyond the fame and fortune, this is Pam at her core, living her life with no regrets.”

The show will reportedly be different than other reality series, according to its producers, World of Wonder Productions. “‘Pamela’ will be an artistically rich and visually stunning series. The series will offer an unprecedented look inside the life of one of today’s most iconic superstars in the style of a uniquely shot documentary film,” Randy Barbato said in the press release.
