Amber Heard

Story by Jack Foley

AMBER Heard has described her new TV pilot Playboys as a cross between The Sopranos, Mad Men and Moulin Rouge.

NBC is to air the drama, which will be set in the frisky world of ’60s Playboy clubs and will focus on a group of women working as bunnies in the Chicago club.

And Heard is excited about what the show will offer viewers.

Speaking to IndieLondon while promoting her latest film, Drive Angry the actress said: “It’s got a musical element that could only take place in the ‘60s where the best music of all-time was made. And it has all the elements of the ‘60s that are so famous to us today.

“You know, women’s lib and the civil rights movement and all these other elements play into a very, very rich and textured crime drama centred around the Playboy clubs of the 1960s.”

The pilot is based on a script by Chad Hodge, of Tru Calling fame.
