The Playboy Club picked up by NBC for the autumn

Amber Heard makes a very pleasing Bunny indeed


Well, much to Triple P's surprise, the Playboy TV series we reported on in February has been picked up by NBC for the autumn season.  The title of the series has changed once more from Bunny Tales, to Playboy and now is being called The Playboy Club.

Added to the cast since our last report is 25 year old Canadian actress/singer/songwriter Leah Renee.  Despite her young age, Toronto born Leah, has been in showbusiness for twenty years, doing cartoon voiceovers (she played a beaver, inevitably) and her first TV acting at 10. 


Leah Renee


She started taking singing lessons at the age of thirteen and her first single came out in 2009. There was talk of a follow up album at the time but there is no sign of it anywhere on the internet, which is probably why she has dumped her previously wholseome image for a cottontail.

The show will go out on network TV which means no nudity (why are Americans so funny about this?) but, apparently, the cast, in an unprecented move for a network show, has been asked to sign a nudity clause, with nude scenes being expected for international editions and/or DVD. How you can make a show about Playboy and not have any nudity? It's like making a series about a restaurant and not showing any food.

We shall continue to follow developments closely!
