NBC's "The Playboy Club" is scheduled for a fall premiere (if the pilot gets picked up) and star Amber Heard posted her first picture in the famous bunny costume on her Facebook page. With AMC announcing"Mad Men" won't return until 2012, those starving for '60s-era drama can turn to "The Playboy Club," a drama set in the Chicago club during the height of Playboy-mania.
It's doubtful this project will equal the excellence of "Mad Men," but executive producer Brian Grazer has some strong TV credits ("Friday Night Lights," "Arrested Development") under his belt. And, NBC really needs to get back on the map with some quality dramas so taking risks to create something interesting is possible. Plus, there will also be pretty girls in bunny costumes.
