Smash” is an American musical drama series that celebrates the beauty and heartbreak of the Broadway theater, revolving around the creation of a new musical based on the life of the late Marilyn Monroe.

It follows a cross-section of dreamers and schemers who all have only one common desire – to be a “Smash”.

The series, a production of DreamWorks Television, was premiered on NBC in the US on 6th February 2012 and is co-produced by world-famous movie-making entrepreneur, Steven Spielberg. Its pilot episode was watched by a whopping number of 11.44 million viewers.

Wowza.

Because it garnered so much positive feedback and the momentum quickly picked up a throng of followers, on 22nd March 2012, it was reported that NBC renewed Smash for a second season:

The story starts with a successful songwriting team (portrayed by Debra Messing and Christian Borle) who begin to work on the said Marilyn Monroe-esque musical. Then comes a tenacious producer (played by Anjelica Houston) with something to prove.

The excitement grows once casting of the title role begins. And from there onwards, it’s one hell of a rollercoacter ride that will culminate on opening night when the audience will determine whether it will be a smash.

Smash. Indeed. Could this be the series to give FOX’s “GLEE” a run for their money? We’ll see. Catch Smash every Monday at 9pm on DIVA Universal, Astro Channel 702!
