The series stars Pamela Anderson as Vallery Irons, a woman who accidentally saves a celebrity and then is hired by a real bodyguard agency as a famous figurehead while the rest of the agency's professionals work to solve cases. Ironically, her lack of investigation skills ends up defeating the antagonists in every episode.
The other team members are an assortment of people of different backgrounds: a former member of the KGB, CIA, FBI, a smart woman who is into computers, a karate master, a former policeman and a former street boxer.
The series uses a mixture of action, comedy, and camp, with Anderson often poking fun at her tabloid image. In November, 2001, V.I.P. (the video game) was released on the PlayStation console. Versions on PC, Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance were canceled.
