Smash

What is Smash About?

“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 “smash.” The series centers on the process of creating a Broadway musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe – written by the successful songwriting duo of Tom and Julia. Julia recently began the process of adopting a child with her husband Frank of many years, but her focus is torn when she has the opportunity to write another Broadway hit. A rivalry soon forms for the lead role between a youthful, inexperienced Midwestern beauty Karen – who is trying to find fame in the big city against all odds – and stage veteran Ivy Bell, who’s determined to leave the chorus line and finally get her big break. A tenacious producer Eileen discovers the “Marilyn” project and jumps on board with a brilliant director, Derek – whose talent is matched by his cunning and egocentric amorality.
