We’re absolutely thrilled that the second season of our show Power: Hugh Hefner, in partnership with Sony Music Entertainment, has been recognised as one of Apple UK’s best new shows of 2021.
The season explores the complex story behind legendary Playboy founder Hugh Hefner’s rise and the legacy he left behind, told through the eyes of the women who knew him best.
Hosted by journalist and author Amy Rose Spiegel, the series delves into Hefner’s rise to power and the origins of Playboy and investigate questions around the dark side of the brand, including notorious Mansion parties and Hefner’s manipulation and control of his girlfriends and other associates. Featuring conversations with several of the women directly involved with Playboy, including Bunnies who worked in the clubs and the model and TV personality Holly Madison, Power: Hugh Hefner will tackle important questions around the brand’s complicated role in contributing to both progressive movements and oppression.
Dave Anderson is the series producer and Peggy Sutton is the executive producer. Paul Smith, Georgia Mills, and Cheeka Eyers also produced the show.
