Sony Pictures TV is currently creating a limited series about Holly Madison, former Playboy bunny (and ex-girlfriend of Hugh Hefner) who turned into a reality TV star. Now, the upcoming series has finally found its lead actor: Samara Weaving.

Weaving is an Australian actress who came into fame in the U.S. with roles in The Babysitter, Ready or Not, and Bill & Ted Face the Music. While the Playboy bunny project currently does not have a streamer attached, we do know that it will be based on Madison’s memoir Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny.

The official summary says “the story looks beyond the polished facade of the Playboy brand to depict the visceral, often deeply damaging stories of the women who entered following a dream and found themselves manipulated, controlled and abused by the machine.”

Are you interested in discovering more about Hefner’s Playboy empire and the women who lived with him in the mansion? Will you watch it when it premieres?
