Coming soon: An NBC drama about Playboy bunnies

Pin it

Ever wonder what it would be like if the network that brought you ER and The West Wing made a show about Playboy bunnies? So did that network: NBC is currently developing Playboy, a drama that centers around a cadre of women working as bunnies in 1960s New York City.

If that sounds kind of familiar, it should. Mad Men has touched the topic before, when the British Lane Pryce realized that, you know what, maybe he prefers the sexually groovy America over the patrician Old World. This is what that looked like:

So NBC's Playboy will basically be like the above picture, all the time. The presumably hour-long drama aims to "explore the country's shifting morals and the beginning of the sexual revolution." And if the show is even an eighth as good as Mad Men, it should do just fine. I mean, have you seen non-Thursday night NBC lately?
