Get Ready For TV’s Next Big SMASH!

‘There’s nothing more exciting than the opening night of a hit Broadway musical, except maybe what happens getting there.’

Introducing your new favourite TV show… Smash

In the era of The Voice and Glee, executive producers Steven Spielberg and Craig Zadan & Neil Meron (producers of Chicago and Hairspray), and songwriters Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray), bring you the blood, sweat and tears of the making of a Broadway musical.

Coming soon to NBC, Smash is a musical drama that celebrates the beauty and heartbreak of the Broadway theatre as it follows a cross-section of dreamers and schemers who all have one common desire — to be a “Smash.” And it stars Hamilton Hodell clients JACK DAVENPORT and ANJELICA HUSTON.

While Wicked and The Lion King pack audiences in every night, Julia and Tom, a successful songwriting team played by Debra Messing (Will And Grace) and Christian Borle, begin work on a new musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe. When a tenacious producer (ANJELICA HUSTON) and a fierce and intelligent director (JACK DAVENPORT) jump aboard, so begins the difficult task of casting the silver screen icon. Ivy Lynn, a tough Broadway veteran, seems like the obvious choice. But enter Karen Cartwright (American Idol‘s Katharine McPhee), a young girl from Iowa with a dream of making it on Broadway who walks in and blows everyone away. So who will get the part and begin a journey that will change their lives?

This new series will be a rollercoaster ride that culminates on opening night when the audience gets to determine whether or not the show is a smash!

You can watch the exciting 5-minute preview below.

Smash will premiere on NBC in September 2011.
