CATCH ME IF YOU CAN captures the astonishing true story of Frank Abagnale, Jr., a world-class con artist who passed himself off as a doctor, a lawyer, and a jet pilot-all before the age of 21. With straight-arrow FBI agent Carl Hanratty on Frank's trail, we're off on a jet-setting, cat-and-mouse chase, as a jazzy, swinging-sixties score keeps this adventure in constant motion. In the end, Agent Hanratty learns he and Frank aren't so very different after all, and Frank finds out what happens when love catches up to a man on the run.

SMASH's 'Broadway, Here I Come' Hits #91 on iTunes Top 100
by Pat Cerasaro - Feb 6, 2013

NBC's hit musical drama series SMASH had its Season Two premiere last night and new castmember Jeremy Jordan (Jimmy Collins) has already scored a coup for the show with scoring a slot on the iTunes Top 100 chart with his passionate recording of the original Joe Iconis song 'Broadway, Here I Come'. The full iTunes chart is available here. Unlike the other musical TV series of the moment, GLEE, SMASH songs have rarely had a prominent place on the iTunes charts, so this early hit portends well for the contemporary original material being created for the show in Season Two by tunesmiths Joe Iconis as well as A CHRISTMAS STORY and DOGFIGHT composer/lyricist team Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
