In news that makes me ask “WTF”, word has officially come out that NBC has given the green light to a new series called “Playboy”. Little information is know about the new series other than it’s set at the famous Playboy club in NYC back in the 60s.
I know that Mad Men (AMC) did an episode that was wildly popular and garnered much critical acclaim that took place around the very same Playboy club last year but let’s be honest – That’s AMC. I really can’t see this becoming a successful show given the restraints the writers will have to follow. How do you have Playboy Bunnies without sex, alcohol and all the other things that make the world go round.
