Watch: Mounting a Broadway Musical in 'Smash'


In February I posted about the pilot in development at NBC called Smash, about the mounting of a Broadway musical.Here's the preview introduced recently at upfronts. Some interesting elements here — Debra Messing, Anjelica Huston, former American Idol contestant Katherine McPhee, Broadway, Marilyn Monroe, and Steven Spielberg.

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

  9. Ditto ALL OF THE ABOVE. Hey Kevin, more like I will definitely see that BECAUSE I'm not a fan of Glee. Who is this Katherine McPhee? Buzz, buzz…

  10. I was prepared for the worst ... and whaddya know, found the best. Looks really good. And yeah: I'd pay to watch Anjelica Huston read the phone book.

  13. "Introducing" Katherine McPhee? I guess they are just ignoring that whole American Idol thing that previously introduced her to American TV audiences (plus her guest spots on Ugly Betty, CSI: NY, etc.)

  14. Why does Angelica Huston always look like she's forever playing in the Addams Family?

  17. Can't stop watching this promo. I heart Glee but the Kurt storyline is totally played out. This is definitely on my things to watch.

  18. Looks like the basic premise of Showgirls, Burlesque, and most of the Step Up movies neutered for primetime with a tinge of Black Swan. Wow, original... pass.

  19. I just said WOW outloud while I'm sitting alone at my computer! This is the first show to make me excited to watch in a long time. Move over "Glee", the big kids are coming to play!

  20. This is Broadway on the tiny screen, what a cast, can't wait!

  21. Katharine singing 'Beautiful' was indeed beautiful.

    I AM IN!

  22. When . . .I can't wait ! we are now into mid October and not a word from the network, maybe it's just too good to produce! And possibly costly, that talent does not come cheap.

    Concept is great but can it work for 13 weeks ?
