There's nothing more exciting than the opening night of a hit Broadway musical, except maybe what happens getting there.

According to press notes, “SMASH centres on a desire to create a Broadway musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe—written by the successful songwriting duo of Tom (Christian Borle) and Julia (Debra Messing). Julia recently began the process of adopting a child with her husband 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—who is trying to find fame in the big city against all odds—and stage veteran , 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—whose talent is matched by his cunning and egocentric amorality.”

SMASH premieres in the US on February 6th, however have released the pilot episode on the below linkfor free download!
