Former 3LW member Naturi Naughton played a Playboy bunny on an episode of the AMC original series “Mad Men,” and now she is set to do the same in a pilot for NBC that focuses on the 1960’s heyday of the famed Playboy nightclubs.
According to Variety, Naturi has been cast in “Playboy” and will be joined by actress Amber Heard. Naturi will play the role of Brenda, a model who aspires to be the first black Playboy centerfold.
NBC picked up the pilot in January and it is set to be an hour long drama should it actually make the cut. Chad Hodge (“Tru Calling”) penned the script and exec produces with Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo. Twentieth Century Fox TV and Imagine TV are producing.
