Want To Be On The New Playboy TV Show?

By Sierra Tishgart
It’s easy to forget that before the manicured lawns, exotic peacocks, and bronzed blondes in Los Angeles, Playboy got its start in Chicago. NBC has just picked up a television pilot about the Playboy Club in the 1960s. Hugh Hefner opened the flagship Playboy Club in 1960 on Walton Street, where bachelors wagged their tongues at bunnies in corsets and pom-pom tails. Hopefully, the show won’t be all sex and satin—it was also during this time that Hefner advocated for racial diversity and women’s reproductive rights. The show is set to shoot in Chicago, where all of the film’s extras, stand-ins, and photo doubles will also be hired. We know you have a bunny costume stashed in the back of your closet, or if you’re lucky, some Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 bunny ears. Happy hopping!
