20th Century Fox open casting call for NBC series 'The Playboy Club'

*** "The Playboy Club" has been cancelled ***

The show premiered to a only 5 million viewers on September 219, 2011 and then plummeted to a mere 3.8 million the following week. It's a bummer because I personally loved the show. I think it was a huge mistage airing on the same night as Dancing With The Stars.


NBC The Playboy Club Open Casting Call

"The Playboy Club" will air Mondays 10/9c starting September 19, 2011.
AB Media Publishing, LLC

The new NBC historical fiction television series "The Playboy Club" is now in production in Chicago, and an open casting call will be held on August 20, 2011 for people interested in working as a background artists on the show.

Academy Award winning Brian Grazer is producing with Francie Calfo and Robin Gurney under the banner of Imagine Entertainment. Chad Hodge wrote the script and is also co-producing. Primetime Emmy winner Alan Taylor directed "The Playboy Club" pilot episode. Taylor's television directing credits include "The West Wing," "Six Feet Under," "Sex and the City," "Lost," "The Sopranos," "Mad Men," and "Boardwalk Empire".

The cast includes the amazingly beautiful and talented Amber Heard as Playboy Bunny Maureen.

NBC announced on May 12, 2011 that it had picked up the pilot as a series

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has the authority to review scripts for the series but according to writer/producer Chad Hodge, Hef has been very hands-off.

A provocative new drama about a time and place that challenged the social mores, where a visionary entrepreneur created an empire and an icon changed American culture. It’s the early ‘60s, and the legendary Playboy Club in Chicago is the door to all of your fantasies - and the key is the most sought-after status symbol of its kind. Inside the seductive world of the bunny, the epitome of beauty and service, the clientele rubs shoulders with the decade’s biggest mobsters, politicos and entertainers. Nick Dalton (Eddie Cibrian) is one of the city’s top attorneys and the ultimate playboy, rubbing elbows with everyone in the city's power structure. With mysterious ties to the mob, Nick comes to the aid of Maureen (Amber Heard), the stunning and innocent new bunny who accidentally kills the leader of the Bianchi crime family. Dating Nick is Carol-Lynne (Laura Benanti), a bombshell and established star at the club who knows her days as a bunny are numbered and finds herself continually at odds with Billy (David Krumholtz), the club's general manager. Adding to the charm of the Playboy club is Janie (Dewan Tatum), the carefree life of the party who is dating Max (Wes Ramsey), an overly protective bartender.
