‘Smash’ to Possibly Live On

You may have heard that the Ovation Channel secured the rights to syndicate the musical drama series SMASH. But now it seems like the Marilyn Monroe musical Bombshell, the centerpiece of the now cancelled NBC show, will live on even further than expected.

Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, who were recently nominated for an Emmy for music featured in the show’s second season, said they are currently discussing ways for the show’s music to live on after cancellation.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Shaiman expressed that one possible idea would be a benefit concert an that one charity has already expressed interest in working with them. “A concert could feature the cast and additional performers from Broadway. That would be a wonderful way for the show to live on.”

What do you think? Would you go to a Bombshell concert?

Scoop on Bernadette Peters’ Return to ‘Smash’

I am so excited for Bernadette Peters to return to Smash! Scoop? — Beth
NATALIE: When Peters returns as Ivy’s domineering mama later this season, they’ll “get to see her sing a lot more,” Megan Hilty says. And when she’s not singing show tunes, she will be trying to mend fences with Ivy. “You’ll see the two of them try and work things out,” Hilty says. “They’re two very strong women and so it isn’t easy, but they’re trying.” Judging from Peters’ last appearance on the show, we’re going to say that “trying” is the operative word.
