Adlon was born in New York City, the daughter of TV comedy writer-producer and author of comic books and science fiction pulp novels, Donald "Don" Maxwell Segall (1933–1994), and Marina L. Segall. Her father produced The Dave Garroway Show, which became AM New York, and then The Today Show. He was a page at NBC with Gil Cates. He wrote under various pseudonyms including Troy Conway. Her father was from Boston and her mother is English. Adlon's mother converted to Judaism. Adlon said they met at the USO in Paris.
As a child she lived in the Carnegie House building at 100 West 57th Street.
Adlon has said that she and her family lived bi-coastally, moving between Los Angeles and New York because her father was a journeyman writer and producer for TV. She started performing at age nine; one of her father's friends had a radio studio, so she would do voice over work there, and while in Los Angeles she did acting work.
Adlon attended Sarah Lawrence College for a semester.
In 1996, Adlon was married to Felix O. Adlon, the son of German director Percy Adlon. They divorced in 2010 and he currently lives in Germany. They have three daughters. Adlon has said she is a single-parent.
Adlon was originally credited as Pamela Segall, but since her marriage and divorce she has been credited as either "Pamela Segall Adlon" or "Pamela S. Adlon".
On May 16, 2010, Adlon was on United Airlines Flight 27 en route from New York JFK to Los Angeles when the plane had to make an emergency landing at Dulles International Airport because of a cockpit fire. Other actors on board were Mary-Kate Olsen and Justin Bartha.
Adlon splits her time, living on Upper West Side in New York City and Los Angeles, California.
