‘Smash’ Pilot Available for Free On iTunes
Can't get enough musical drama on your TV? Sure, we're all stoked for the return of 'Glee,' and 'Idol' and 'The Voice' will surely give us enough real life drama, but NBC's 'Smash' will give us something we haven't seen yet: a fictionalized look at everything that goes into putting on a Broadway musical. And you can watch the pilot episode on iTunes right now. For free.
If you think 'Smash' won't be your cup of tea, the pilot just might surprise you and leave you wanting more. That's what NBC is hoping for, at least. By letting people stream the pilot early, they are will hook you into the story that revolves around songwriting duo Tom (Christian Borle) and Julia (Debra Messing), who reunite to write a musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe. Singing, dancing, drama and old Hollywood nostalgia? Wow, we're already hooked!
With original songs in every episode, 'Smash' is sure to please everyone's inner Broadway nerd, but don't let the singing fool you. This is for people who just love a good story, too. Go check it out. What have you got to lose? An hour of your time? Whatever.
