...but can we skip ahead to the middle of the Fall 2011 television season?
One of the shows slated as a mid-season replacement is Smash, which follows the development of a Broadway musical about Marilyn Monroe, through casting, tryouts, production, etc. It focuses on those behind the scenes and, ultimately, the two women vying for the lead role.
I have watched this YouTube clip about 1000 times and each time I am more excited about the prospect. I hope it doesn't disappoint, and I hope it truly does make a star out of Katharine McPhee, as I think she's really talented and beautiful. And besidesthe show has Debra Messing, Christian Borle (so good in the Legally Blonde musical) and Anjelica Huston. How could you miss?
Check it out. Does it intrigue you?
