Amazon Studio has officially ordered a 13 episode documentary series focused on Playboy Magazine founder, Hugh Hefner. The series which is tentatively titled, American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story, will not only cover Hefner’s life in the public eye, but it will also offer a more personal never-before-seen look into the company he built.
How is Amazon delivering such an intimate look into Playboy you ask? Because Amazon has been given access to over 2,000 of Hef’s personal scrapbooks and more than 17,000 hours of Playboy archived footage.
The project is expected to debut in 2017, but an exact date has not been released. This will be an Amazon Prime exclusive in the US, UK, Germany, Australia and Japan.
