Anti-porn group prepares to storm Capitol Hill over racy new TV show

This time the group’s target is an NBC drama coming out this fall, set in a 1960s club. And in a bold, or perhaps foolhardy move, the group is counting on those same lawmakers who signed the April letters to publicly condemn a major-network TV show.

“This is going to be an ongoing rollout of our attack on NBC,” CWIP President Patrick Trueman told ITK. “Next up, we’ll be calling on members of Congress who signed those letters [this spring] to either issue a press release or a statement condemning ‘The Playboy Club’ on NBC.”

Not surprisingly, most of the signatories to the April letter were conservative Republicans, but Democratic Sens.

Trueman said CWIP has yet to contact NBC about the campaign against the network’s show. “We’re not at that stage yet.” 

Either way, it’s highly unlikely that Feinstein, a California Democrat, would move to condemn a network TV show, even a slightly racy one.
