EW reports that the 10-episode show will provide unique access into the never-before-seen archive footage and surf through personal scrapbook collections chronicling the six-decade-old brand that impacted global culture and history.

"Presenting the dual narrative of Hefner's personal and professional lives, intertwined with the evolution of the country he sought to change. This 10-episode series dives beyond the glamour of Marilyn Monroe's 1953 nude centrefold into Hefner's fights for and impact on free speech, civil rights, women's rights, and more," the official synopsis reads.

Matt Whelan will play the role of a young Hefner. Stephen David dons the cap of the executive producer and Hefner's son, Cooper, will be the series spokesperson.

The show will be available from April 7 on Amazon Prime Video.
