The acclaimed New York Times best selling rock & roll memoir is finally coming to the screen in this scripted feature adaptation.  As a young girl growing up in Los Angeles during the late 60s and early 70s, Pamela Des Barres (the “real life” Penny Lane from Almost Famous) followed, dated, loved, and genuinely beguiled the likes of Jim Morrison, Mick Jagger, Waylon Jennings, Jimmy Page, Gram Parsons, Keith Moon, and Frank Zappa to name a few.

This is the rollercoaster biopic of her life—written by Miss Pamela herself.  This rock & roll dramedy is a humorous, loving, and intoxicating Coming-of-Age story that takes place up and down the Sunset Strip—with the soundtrack of a lifetime, appealing to every age group. In the spirit of Walk the Line, Almost Famous, and The Doors, this kiss-and-tell-all will stand out as the perfect chronicle of rock ‘n’ roll’s most thrilling era.

Of the memoir that this film is based, perhaps the Led Zeppelin front man said it best. “I couldn’t have done it better myself. I will always love you, Miss Pamela, and again a thousand apologies for the premature ejaculation.” —Robert Plant
