The show focused around the process of a Broadway production, from the songwriting team to the actors, as they worked on a musical about Marilyn Monroe. They post a video on YouTube and it goes viral, catching the eye of a producer looking to take on a new show. They then narrow it down to two choices for the lead role, Karen (Katharine McPhee) and Ivy (Megan Hilty), who sing their hearts out to make it to the top.
The Broadway show will be called Hit List
, which is the fictional musical that characters on the show were working on. According to The New York Times
, former Smash
stars, Jeremy Jordan and Andy Mientus will appear in the musical.
Earlier this year, Theresa Rebeck, the show's creator slammed the second season in "a series of emails," according to Digital Spy
Rebeck left the musical drama and was replaced as showrunner by Gossip Girl's Josh Safran. She said that the latest episodes were "a complete disaster."
The musical is set to take the stage on December 9 at 54 Below on Broadway.
