NBC's PLAYBOY Pilot Has A Nudity Clause In Actor Contracts


NBC's pilot about the height of the Playboy clubs in the 1960's reportedly has a nudity clause in the contracts. Immediately the moralistic Parent's Television Council, a pro censorship group was outraged. However, NBC is not likely to feature anything other than some side view breasts in the TV version of the show. Likely, alternate nude scenes will be shot to be used in the DVD versions of the show if it is picked up by NBC. In May, NBC executives will decide whether to add this new show to their Fall schedule.


The bottom line(no pun intended), don't look for NBC or broadcast TV to look like Showtime any time soon. Broadcast TV still has the dreaded FCC and watchdog groups such as the PTC to worry about. And ABC only recently won a favorable court ruling after years of litigation with the FCC over a huge fine for showing a female bare bottom during a shower scene. This show ended in March 2005.


Bare bottoms and breasts, or even more, just aren't likely to be seen on broadcast TV in your future. And whether the PLAYBOY show ever makes it to NBC is up in the air as well. Back in 2003 a FOX show about a Jewish adult entertainment magnate entitled SKIN caused a huge uproar among watchdog censorship groups although the series never was explicit. It was actually a well produced Shakespearian influenced script that seemed lifted directly from "Romeo And Juliet" where the late great actor Ron Silver was cast as Arthur Goldman and a prosecutor were at odds with each other, while their children were in love. It was a very promising series that just never clicked well with audiences and was quickly canceled after airing only three episodes on FOX and all produced episodes on SOAPnet.
