The Playboy Club The Parents Television Council has a new target in its sights: NBC's 'The Playboy Club.' It was only a matter of time before the conservative watchdog group targeted the new fall series, which is set in Chicago's Playboy club in the 1960s.

According to Broadcasting & Cable, the PTC sent letters to all NBC affiliates, urging them not to air the new crime drama.

In the letter, PTC president Tim Winter told stations the show was attempting to put a layer of class on the porn industry. If the stations did air the show, Winter warned the PTC would urge its members to file complaints with the FCC.

KSL, NBC's Salt Lake City's already announced it is refusing to air the new series because of its content. Instead, the Salt Lake City affiliate for MyNetworkTV will air 'The Playboy Club' this fall.

The PTC previously targeted MTV's 'Skins,' calling it "the most dangerous show for teens."

You can watch a preview of 'The Playboy Club' below.
