A Look at NBC's "Playboy Club" With Laura Benanti (Video)

PlayBlog   A Look at NBC's "Playboy Club" With Laura Benanti (Video) NBC recently picked up the new drama "The Playboy Club," which features Tony Award winner Laura Benanti.

The series, according to NBC, "is 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."

Benanti received her Tony Award for Gypsy and most recently appeared on Broadway in Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, earning another Tony nomination.
