The NBC TV series, “Smash,” aired for two seasons in 2012 and 2013. Created by playwright Theresa Rebeck, it told the story of the creation of a Broadway musical about Marilyn Monroe. It featured a large ensemble cast, including Debra Messing, Jack Davenport, Katharine McPhee, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, and Anjelica Huston.
The series enjoyed some critical success but never found an audience and was cancelled at the end of the second season. For the show’s last episode the two central characters competing for the role of Marilyn Monroe offer a big finish. Enjoy.
