"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." In Season 2, the "Bombshell" team is one step closer to achieving their Broadway dream. The Boston run was the success the team was hoping for, including producer Eileen Rand (Academy Award winner Anjelica Huston, "Prizzi's Honor"); writers Tom Levitt (Tony Award winner Christian Borle, "Peter and the Starcatcher"); and Julia Houston (Emmy Award winner Debra Messing, "Will & Grace"); last-minute star Karen Cartwright (Katharine McPhee, "American Idol"); and director Derek Wills (Jack Davenport, "Pirates of the Caribbean"). But, they are all about to learn that even a charmed show cannot avoid paying for sins of the past.
Will Eileen get away with mixing business and pleasure with her shady paramour, Nick (guest star Thorsten Kaye)? Will Julia' s marriage to Frank (guest star Brian d'Arcy James) survive the revelation of her infidelity? Will actress Ivy Lynn (Megan Hilty, "9 to 5: The Musical") bounce back from the shame of losing the lead role to rival Karen and bedding her fiance in retaliation? And will Tom and Julia's long-time partnership endure the changing tides of opportunity? As they all scramble to push forward, one of the show's players finds Brooklyn natives Jimmy Collins (Tony Award nominee Jeremy Jordan, "Newsies") and Kyle Bishop (Andy Mientus, "Carrie: The Musical") toiling away on a current-day rock musical of their own, which could either become "Bombshell's" biggest rival, or yet one more Broadway false start.
Two weeks ago NBC officially announced that Smash - Season 2
is ending the series with a two-hour finale that's set to air this coming Sunday night. This morning Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced that the 4-DVD release of Smash - Season 2
will be in stores this summer, on August 6th
, priced at $44.98 SRP. Extras, if any, haven't been announced yet, nor do we have package art at this time. There's no word of a Blu-ray format release for this; it's just DVD. Nor is there any mention of a "complete series" type of set, either, but if we find out anything then we'll certainly let you know. Stay tuned for updates!
