NBC picks up 'Playboy Club,' 'Awake' and 'Grimm'
Deadline reports three dramas -- "The Playboy Club," "Awake" and "Grimm" -- have all been ordered to series.
One of the higher profile pilots this season, Chad Hodge's 1960s-set "Playboy," likely has the network hoping for "Mad Men"-style success. It stars David Krumholtz, Eddie Cibrian and Amber Heard -- who teased Facebook fans earlier this spring with a photo of herself in full bunny garb.
"Awake" (formerly "REM") comes from "Lone Star" creator Kyle Killen and follows an "Inception"-like plot of a detective in distress after a car accident shatters his family. It stars Jason Isaacs ("Harry Potter") in the lead role, with Wilmer Valderrama and Steve Harris as supporting players.
The third, "Grimm," is a fantasy cop procedural, where all the characters are inspired by fairy tales. This last one doesn't bode well for "17th Precinct," the supernatural detective series ( and veritable "Battlestar Galactica" reunion) from Ron Moore.
Deadline also reports that this may be it for the network's drama pick-ups.
