Series Summary
A successful songwriting duo of industry veterans, Julia and Tom have an opportunity to create another Broadway hit, but making it to opening night isn't easy. When tenacious producer Eileen joins the project, a musical based on the life of iconic actress Marilyn Monroe, a rivalry for the lead role percolates between a beautiful novice and a stage veteran who is hoping to catch her big break. While the production is being prepped for opening night, real life has a tendency to get in the way: Julia and her husband are in the midst of a complicated adoption; the producer's divorce proceedings could threaten the production's finances; and the director could derail everything if he puts the star in a compromising position.

  • Smash elegantly and energetically draws you into the orbit of a dozen dreamers and schemers at various stages in their Great White Way careers, and, like a true pro, the show makes it all look easy. Show More
