SmashAll the fun, sparkle, sweat and back-stabbing of Broadway are explored in NBC’s musical TV show Smash.

The series stars Katharine McPhee (The House Bunny) as the innocent ingenue Karen Cartwright, whose talent makes her a competitor for the lead role in a new Broadway musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe. She’s up against the more experience Ivy Lynn (Megan Hilty, Bitter Feast), who doesn’t mind sleeping with the director (Jack Davenport, Pirates of the Caribbean movies) to secure what she wants.

Debra Messing (TV’s Will & Grace) also stars as the renowned lyricist Julia Houston and Angelica Huston (The Big Year) as Eileen Rand, a woman out to prove that she can produce a successful show on her own.

The first season also features real-life Broadway legend Bernadette Peters (TV’s Ugly Betty) as Ivy’s spotlight-grabbing mother, Uma Thurman (Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief) as a movie star who’s trying her hand on the stage and pop star Nick Jonas (Les Miserables) as a successful singer.

On DVD, Smash: Season One comes with these special features:

  • deleted and extended scenes
