NBC Stays Awake at the Playboy Club

Out with the old, in with the new: NBC ordered three new shows today. Vulture favorite Kyle Killen's dreamy Inception-ish pilot Awake (formerly called REM) was picked up, along with retrofied sixties drama The Playboy Club, and the fairy-tale-themed Grimm. This may signal the end of NBC's seasonal drama pickups, despite the fact that David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman and Stephen Gaghan's Metro are both still sitting on the shelf. [Deadline]
