I couldn’t be prouder of this accomplishment. After optioning the acclaimed, famed, and beloved New York Times best selling rock & roll memoir from Pamela Des Barres several (who’s counting?) years ago… we finally pushed it over the finish line with Netflix! And we’ve got an incredible team of smart, inspiring ladies to make this empowerment story a true creative success.

“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
In case you haven’t read it… here’s the story line: 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.
