Zoom acquires show on Playboy founder Hugh Hefner

MUMBAI: Indian lifestyle channel Zoom has acquired from E! the rights for the 15 episode show Girls of the Playboy Mansion.

The show follows Playboy founder Hugh Hefner and the three women he lives with. E! Networks VP intl sales Duccio Donati says, "Entertainment fans around the globe are fascinated by Hugh Hefner and the world of Playboy. We've had amazing interest from international buyers in all major territories and hope to announce additional deals soon. We're excited to give world audiences a behind the scenes look into the life of this self-made magnate from a truly new vantage point—through the eyes of the three young women he loves."

The series kicks off as viewers get to know Hef's three girlfriends--Holly, Bridget and Kendra--and how life works at the world's most famous Mansion. The group is off to the American Film Institute salute to Star Wars creator George Lucas, and naturally Kendra is running late. After the event, Kendra wants to watch a movie from Hef's extensive collection and continues to ruffle Holly's feathers--and gets her dogs all worked up, too--while looking for it in the master bedroom. Holly reveals that she'd like to get rid of the other girls. But Kendra's not going anywhere.

In another episode Hefner and the girls travel to Las Vegas. The aim is to promote the new Playboy Club at the Palms Hotel & Casino and to preview designer Roberto Cavalli's sexy bunny couture. The Palms' new Playboy tower is stunning, housing Playboy-themed casinos, suites and the first official Playboy Club in decades. During their stay, the gang embraces the rest of Sin City, too, checking out a wax replica of Hef at Madame Tussaud's, partying with hotelier George Maloof and playing some B-ball inside a hotel room's full-size basketball court. Then it's off to dinner with Cavalli and a fashion show for the new Playboy Club's bunny costumes--starring Holly.
