New Preview Clips Give Us A Peek Inside NBC’s ‘Playboy Club’

NBC is gearing us up for the premiere of its controvercial new drama, The Playboy Club, by roping us in with something we television viewers can never resist: sexy, salacious drama. We find the attractive man about town, Nick (Eddie Cibrian) who takes notice of the new bunny, Maureen (Amber Heard). We find Nick acting as her knight in shining armor when a mob boss tries to force himself on her in the backroom. We also find her damp and shivering while wearing Nick’s shirt and hiding in his closet just as Carole Lynne (Laura Benanti) finds her and storms out. And finally we find out that Carole Lynne is likely going to make Maureen’s life hell, because she’s the Bunny Mother at Chicago’s sexiest gentlemen’s club. Watch, enjoy, and be prepared to feel hopelessly compelled to watch the series premiere on Monday, Sept. 19 at 10 p.m.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
