TV station owned by Mormons refuses to air new series about bunny-land, “THE PLAYBOY CLUB”.
The fall NBC 1960s swing-a-ding-dinger series starring EDDIE CIBRIAN and AMBER HEARD against the backdrop of Chicago politicos and mobsters, won’t air in prime Utah outlet.
KSL-TV in Salt Lake City, a TV station owned by the Mormons has opted against airing the network’s upcoming fall drama The Playboy Club, citing objectionable content.
The station, owned by Deseret Media Companies, is controlled by the Mormon church — whose mission is to “champion values that have been cherished by good people from diverse backgrounds for centuries.”
Those values were savagely mocked by the multiple Tony award winning “Book of Mormon” by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
Yet Mormon founder Joseph Smith, Jr. was practicing polygamist — unlike Playboy founder Hugh Hefner who despite having multiple girlfriends only marries one at a time.
NBC entertainment chair Bob Greenblatt claimed the retro bunny hop was “tame compared to what you’d see on Jersey Shore.”
POP FYI:The Osmonds including Marie and Donny are of the Mormon faith. So is Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.
