NBC Sets THE VOICE and SMASH Premiere Dates

August 1, 2011 by  

If you’re like me and you’ve been going through some major THE VOICE withdrawals, there is some relief in sight!

At NBC’s TCA executive session Monday morning, Robert Greenblatt announced that the one-hour second season premiere will debut directly after the Super Bowl on February 5th, 2012. THE VOICE will make its timeslot debut with a two-hour episode the following day.

And if you’re already watching THE VOICE, you’ll definitely want to stick around on Monday, February 6th, because NBC is debuting their new series, SMASH, at 10 PM.

Per NBC, SMASH is a “musical drama that celebrates the beauty and heartbreak of the Broadway theater as it follows a cross-section of dreamers and schemers who all have one common desire — to be a ‘Smash.’ The series centers on a desire to create a Broadway musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe — written by the successful songwriting duo of Tom (Tony Award nominee Christian Borle, “Legally Blonde: The Musical”) and Julia (Emmy Award winner Debra Messing, “Will & Grace”). Julia recently began the process of adopting a child with her husband of many years, but her focus is torn when she has the opportunity to write another Broadway hit. A rivalry soon forms for the lead role between a youthful, inexperienced Midwestern beauty (Katharine McPhee, “American Idol”) — who is trying to find fame in the big city against all odds — and stage veteran (Megan Hilty, “9 to 5: The Musical”), who’s determined to leave the chorus line and finally get her big break. A tenacious producer Eileen (Oscar winner, Anjelica Huston, “Prizzi’s Honor”) discovers the “Marilyn” project and jumps on board with a brilliant director (Jack Davenport, “Pirates of the Caribbean” films) — whose talent is matched by his cunning and egocentric amorality.”
