Holly Madison is getting candid about her experience with the Playboy brand in a new docuseries.

On Tuesday, A&E Network released the first trailer for "Secrets of Playboy," a 10-part series that examines the world of the late Playboy founder, Hugh Hefner, who died in 2017. The documentary will feature exclusive interviews from individuals who had firsthand knowledge of Hefner's life, including Madison, who lived with him at the mansion from 2001 to 2008.

In the trailer, Madison, who has been open about the struggles she faced during and after her time in the mansion, said she "didn't realize that getting into the Playboy world was a dangerous choice."

Former Playboy Mansion West resident Jennifer Saginor was also among those interviewed for the documentary.

"He didn't want people to know what was really going on," she said in the promo. "The people who were really there, they're the ones who know the real truth."

"There was a side of Playboy that nobody wants to talk about," former "Bunny Mother" PJ Masten said in the clip, while former director of Playmate Promotions Miki Garcia added, "And he really did believe he owned these women."

"Secrets of Playboy," set to premiere in early 2022, will also feature archival footage of Hefner's life and interviews with his ex-girlfriends Bridget Marquardt and Sondra Theodore.

"Breaking down barriers and exposing the truth, 'Secrets of Playboy' is a masterful example of brave storytelling that takes an unflinching look at the personal affects of Hugh Hefner's empire, while also exploring his legacy's larger influence on our society and modern-day views of sexuality," Elaine Frontain Bryant, A&E's executive vice president and head of programming, said in a statement to E! News.

Meanwhile, Madison also previously opened up about her time at the Playboy Mansion in her 2015 memoir, "Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny." According to her, there were myriads of house rules to follow and Hefner allegedly subjected her to verbal and emotional abuse.

"It turned out to be something that was traumatic for me in a way that I wasn't really prepared for...I felt really ashamed of the choice I made," she said on OWN's "Where Are They Now" series.

In a TikTok she shared last month, Madison shared her battle with body dysmorphia at the Playboy Mansion. She explained that the topic came up after she found a photo of herself in a Playboy Bunny costume.

"I really feel like worrying about what I look like has gotten in the way of me living my best life," she explained, "and being as happy as I could be and really enjoying life as much as I could."

But the "Girls Next Door" alum said she has already moved on from it and encouraged others who may be going through the same to reflect on their relationships with their bodies.

"It’s not worth it. It’s not worth feeling bad about yourself. Like, there are things we all want to improve about ourselves, but it’s not even worth taking the time to be miserable," she said.
