Premieres 30th January 2013 Wednesdays at 10:30pm
From Steven Spielberg and the director of Shindler’s List, this new American musical drama series will blow you away.
There is nothing more exciting than opening night of a hit Broadway musical, except what happens getting there. Songwriting duo, Julia (Debra Messing) and Tom are joined by a tenacious producer, Eileen (Anjelica Huston) and brilliant but cocky director, Derek, to create a musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe. A rivalry quickly forms for the starring role between a youthful, inexperienced midwestern beauty, Karen (Kat McPhee) and a stage veteran, Ivy (Megan Hilty). Karen may be a small town girl but she has big dreams and her talent blows everyone away…but who will get this coveted part and begin a journey that will change their lives? A new star will be born, but not without a fight.
On this road to be the best, real life has a tendency to get in everyone’s way including complicated adoptions, divorce proceedings, womanizing director and more. We will watch as they fight and relentlessly pursue their ambitious dreams and create a “Smash.”
From an all-star team, in front and behind the camera, comes a show about the timeless story of dreaming big and getting the one in a million opportunity to make ones dream a reality.
