NBC will soon be playing cops and bunnies.

Sources close to the network confirmed three pilot pickups: “The Playboy Club,” a 1960s-set drama about working-class bunnies; “Awake,” a procedural hybrid from “Lone Star” creator Kyle Killen about a detective grappling with his broken family after a car crash; and “Grimm,” a cop drama with fantasy elements.

That’s in addition to the network’s four pickups announced Wednesday, which included ‘Prime Suspect’ and ‘Smash.’
