SMASH (New TV Drama)

SO looking forward to this – due to start airing in either January / February 2012 in the US, and on Sky Atlantic for those of us in the UK in April 2012.

Billed as ‘Glee for adults’, and based on an idea by Steven Speilberg (as early back as 2009) and with music by the two writers of Hairspray The Musical (the 2002 Broadway stage show / reinvention) – this brand new drama is set as a ‘behind the scenes’ of a Broadway theatre/show, and, frankly, looks absolutely freaking AMAZEBALLS!

I actually cannot wait and have played both the trailer, and the song clip, ‘Let Me Be Your Star’, to death!

Oh, and did I mention that the legendary Anjelica Houston is in this show? (also, as is Debra Messing – best known as ‘Grace’ from ‘Will and Grace’, along with Jack Davenport – seen in many things, including Flash Forward, The Boat That Rocked and Pirates of the Caribbean). It goes without saying that the stars of the show will undoubtedly be Broadway stalwarts Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty, and here’s hoping they become household names across the globe, as happened with fellow Broadway leading lady, Lea Michelle when she got involved with Glee! 😀

This show is absolutely made for me, and I am so excited for it! We totally need a UK version…! 😉

    If you’re into TV and keeping this spreadsheet (i’m even worse), maybe you’d be interested People Choice Awards, showing today on one of Sky channels in UK.

    Dunno why i’m saying it, but i developed this crazy habit of watching original before remake, so in few minutes i’d start watching the first episode of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy if you heard of it; then i’d see the new one. they say it’s good.
