The actress, who plays Playboy bunny Maureen, told IGN that the show is "texturally rich".
"There's a lot to it," she insisted. "Because it takes place in the '60s, we've got the social element. We've [also] got the action, we've got the music, we've got singing and dancing and show business, and we've got crime and we've got murders and we've got the mob. The show has everything."
Heard also hinted that her character Maureen "comes onto the scene with quite a splash".
"What I like about Maureen is that we don't know a lot about her and there is a lot of room for growth and... discovery," she said. "I'm excited about making that journey with the audience."
The Playboy Club creator Chad Hodge previously claimed that viewers will enjoy the show as a guilty pleasure.
"Today, people wish we were living in unhealthier times," he suggested. "Watching this pilot, people are always like, 'I wish I could smoke and drink and have sex in the bathroom'. Now if you do those things, you'll die."
The Playboy Club will air on Mondays at 10/9c in the fall on NBC.
