10 Dec 2012
The second season of the NBC musical drama "Smash" will begin Feb. 5, 2013. Here is a behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming season, which will welcome a slew of newcomers to the series.
Jeremy Jordan, a 2012 Tony Award nominee for Newsies, will play a Brooklyn-born singer and the new love interest of Karen (Katharine McPhee); Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson ("Dreamgirls") will have a multi-episode arc as a Tony Award-winning Broadway diva.
For the series' second season, Josh Safran succeeds Theresa Rebeck (Seminar) as showrunner — the person in charge of all aspects of the story. Tony Award winners Shaiman and Wittman, and Tony nominees Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are among the show's executive producers.
