Next week Monday, September 19 at 10 PM ET, when the little ones are tucked in I suppose. So if this is a new series you are interested in watching, mark your calendars.
Naturi Naughton in one member of an ensemble cast in NBC’s pilot for The Playboy Club – an hour-long *controversial* drama about 1960s Playboy clubs, set in Chicago. The show centers on a group of women that work as Playboy bunnies, and further, what the producers are describing as an in-depth look at “America’s mores and the coming sexual revolution.”
Naughton plays Bunny Brenda, described as “a stunning African-American Bunny determined to become the first black Playboy centerfold” as well as confidante and roommate to Amber Heard’s lead character, Maureen (a new hire at the club), in the Bunny Dormitory (sounds like a fun place to hang out ;))
And as already reported, Raphael Saadiq will play Sam Cooke in a guest-starring role.
Here's another preview, highlighting Naturi's character:
