'The Playboy Club' finds new hutch in Utah
The bunnies will hippety-hop in Utah again. NBC’s new drama The Playboy Club will air on Salt Lake City’s MyNetwork TV affiliate KMYU after KSL-TV refused to air it earlier this month.
The Playboy Club, which was slotted on Mondays at 10 p.m. this fall, is a Mad Men-style drama set in the 1960s at a Playboy-branded Chicago nightclub.
The show was first dumped because its parent company Bonneville International is owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. “We want to be sure everyone is clear what the KSL brand stands for, which is completely inconsistent with the Playboy brand,” the station’s president and CEO said in a statement.
