Anderson’s oldest son Brandon Lee was a producer on the Netflix doc.
Lee said earlier this week that his mother was criminally underpaid during her time at ’90s pop culture capital Baywatch, as she only earns $4,000 a year in residuals.
“If I go back and even look at past deals and remaining checks, people would be shocked to find out how people were really taking advantage of her,” Lee shared. Additional at the Netflix Tudum Theater in Hollywood, California at the premiere of the documentary Monday.
He described his mother – who played the role of CJ Parker in 110 episodes of the syndicated series from 1992-1997 – as “a young girl who made a bad deal on a big show and she was the biggest star at the time.”
He continued, “Lots of people made a lot of money on that, people are going to have their day when we come knocking…if she’s making $4,000 a year off Baywatch? That’s a crime.’
Anderson was a breakout star in the cast of the beach series, which also starred David Hasselhoff, Yasmine Bleeth, David Charvet, Gena Lee Nolin, Nicole Eggert, Donna D’Errico, and in later years, Jason Momoa.
The $4,000 annual residual fee pales in comparison to many of Anderson’s contemporaries who appeared on hit shows that were later syndicated, according to a 2019 piece published by Yahoo.
Friends’ six main cast members — Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc — earn $20 million a year from a deal that gave them 2 percent each on residuals, according to a 2015 USA today report.
