Premiering on February 2nd, the eight-episode series will follow the celebrity couple’s relationship from their 1995 marriage (just four days after meeting one another!) on through to the birth of their two sons, the filming of their honeymoon sex tape, and the legal battles that ensued when it was uploaded to the Internet.
The all-star cast also includes Nick Offerman as porn impresario Uncle Miltie; Taylor Schilling as Rand’s wife; and Andrew Dice Clay as a mobster. Rogen executive produced the series alongside his longtime collaborator Evan Goldberg, with Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya) serving as director.
Anderson and Lee are not involved in the making of the series, but they are aware of its development. In an interview earlier this fall, Lee said he was “cool” with the project.
“I know Sebastian, he’s playing me. From what he’s told me, really beautiful story,” Lee said. “I think a lot of people would think it’s one thing, but it’s really about privacy and how things got crazy then. There’s different laws now.”
While the personal experience may have been a rough one for both Lee and Anderson, the rocker admits the story itself is worthy of a miniseries. “The story’s actually cool. What actually happened wasn’t, but [Stan] tells me it’s pretty wild,” Lee added. “I feel like it was forever ago. But it’s a cool story and people need to know. It’s cool. I’m stoked.”
