VIDEO: Sneak Peek - SMASH Season 2 Opening Montage
NBC has released a sneak peek of the opening montage for SMASH Season 2, premiering Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 9/8c. In the number, Katharine McPhee's 'Karen' performs the song "Cut, Print, Moving On," from the show's fictional musical 'Bombshell'.
Series star Megan Hilty tells TV Line that her character is not on the best of terms with Karen as the sophomore season of the show kicks off. "It's not so great in the beginning. Ivy has a lot of apologizing to do," explains the actress. "This season is about rehabilitating her life both professionally and personally - and a lot of that has to do with Karen."
"Smash" is a musical drama that celebrates the beauty and heartbreak of the Broadway theater as it follows a cross-section of dreamers and schemers who all have one common desire - to be a Broadway star. The series stars Emmy Award winner Debra Messing ("Will & Grace"), Oscar winner Anjelica Huston ("Prizzi's Honor"), Jack Davenport ("Pirates of the Caribbean" films), Tony Award winner Christian Borle ("Peter and the Starcatcher"), Katharine McPhee ("American Idol"), Megan Hilty ("9 to 5: The Musical"), Tony Award nominee Jeremy Jordan ("Newsies"), Andy Mientus ("Spring Awakening"), Leslie Odom Jr. ("Leap of Faith") and Krysta Rodriguez ("Spring Awakening").
From Universal Television in association with DreamWorks Television, "Smash" stemmed from an idea of executive producer and multiple Emmy and Oscar winner Steven Spielberg ("ER," "Schindler's List"). The series' executive producers also include Joshua Safran ("Gossip Girl"), Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (Oscar-winning "Chicago," "Hairspray"), Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey ("United States of Tara," "The Borgias"), Tony and Grammy Award winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman ("Hairspray," "Catch Me If You Can"), Jim Chory ("Heroes," "American Dreams") and Theresa Rebeck.
