Playboy Bunnies Coming to a T.V. Near You!

Playboy Bunnies Coming to a T.V. Near You!

By Jacob Carson on May 17, 2011

Remember when the actors in the upcoming show "The Playboy Club" were all asked to sign an unheard of nudity clause in their contracts, stating that they would have the option of approving or declining a scene that involved nudity? Well I guess all of the paperwork is in order because after much deliberation, NBC has decided to place the highly anticipated series on its September lineup after months of debate and controversy.

While you won’t be seeing this television show close to any prime time shows on NBC, they’ve put those cute little vintage bunny tails in their place from 10-11 p.m. on Monday nights so they won’t be getting into any trouble anytime soon. While the preview promises plenty of curvaceous beauties and a little bit of pg sex, it is said to be about as graphic as the nightly news.

The show, set in the 1960s, follows bunny Maureen who works at the iconic Playboy Club and member/mob lawyer named Nick Dalton.

Nick Dalton (Eddie Cibrian, CSI: Miami) is one of the city’s top attorneys and the ultimate playboy, rubbing elbows with everyone in the city's power structure. With mysterious ties to the mob, Nick comes to the aid of Maureen (Amber Heard, Zombieland), the stunning and innocent new bunny who accidentally kills the leader of the Bianchi crime family. Dating Nick is Carol-Lynne (Laura Benanti, Take the Lead), a bombshell and established star at the club who knows her days as a bunny are numbered and finds herself continually at odds with Billy (David Krumholtz, Numb3rs), the club's general manager - NBC

By the looks of the trailer, I am afraid it will be a watered down version of Mad Men. I actually had a hard time watching Nick Dalton for just that reason. You are and never will be Don Draper sir! Seriously, did they get this idea from that one scene in the fourth season when the British dude brought Don to a Playboy Club?  

Hugh Hefner hopes to re-launch the iconic Playboy Club internationally if everything goes according to plan and the series does well. Hugh, I really don’t think you need a television show to perk interest, I think everyone has heard of your brand and would gladly give you more money to see pretty girls.
