Playboy Club, The (NBC 2011, Eddie Cibrian, Amber Heard)

The Playboy Club is a period 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.

Adding to the charm of the Playboy club is Janie (Jenna Dewan Tatum), the carefree life of the party who is dating Max (Wes Ramsey), an overly protective bartender.
