Love him, hate him, or feel familiar with but basically indifferent towards him, you have to admit Hugh Hefner has led a pretty interesting life. Some would argue that’s the only real requirement for a good documentary, and so it’s no surprise that American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story is reportedly coming to a TV near you soon.
American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story would seem to belong to the same tradition as the recent OJ: Made in America doc, since instead of a simple one or two-hour production, this will be a thirteen-part documentary series that will cover Hefner’s life and work in exhaustive detail. The project was greenlit by Amazon Studios, and is set to come out sometime next year.
Other than some executive personnel connected to the project, that’s pretty much all we know about American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story. Stay tuned for more info on the show as we get closer to its 2017 premiere, and if you’re just dying to know who’s executive producing it you can read up on the project right here.
