NBC’s “Smash” Filming on the Bowery Today & Tomorrow
NBC’s latest buzzworthy show hasn’t even aired yet, but hype is high. Many industry insiders feel that Smash, a new series about writing and implementing a Broadway musical, is the Peackock response to the success of Glee. The pilot season was to start airing this fall with a first episode reportedly in the hopper. But that’s not happening. Premiere date has been pushed back to early February.
The Smash production is poised to invade and occupy the Bowery for the next forty-eight hours, with signs earmarking the street-space between East Houston and Delancey. So watch your step!
Steven Spielberg is on board as executive producer on the project, but the talent doesn’t stop there. The show stars Debra Messing and Christian Borle as musical composers creating a play about Marilyn Monroe; supporting actors including roles by Christian Borle, Jack Davenport, Anjelica Huston, Brian d’Arcy James, Megan Hilty, and Katharine McPhee.
