The Golden Globe nominated Smash is getting an early preview, much like Bombshell had in Boston, only you can watch part one of the premiere from the comfort of your own home. NBC has released the first hour of the Smash premiere "On Broadway" now.
The preview is available online, on demand, at NBC.com; Hulu, iTunes, Amazon and Xbox.
In the season 1 finale, Bombshell
had its first Boston preview with an unprepared Karen in the lead role and a beautiful new ending. In contrast to that happiness, Ivy was full of despair and took a bunch of pills to supposedly try and kill herself. Ellis was exposed for the manipulator he was and out of the production. And, Karen found out about Dev's indiscretion with Ivy.
Bombshell is headed back to New York with the Boston preview closing and plans to open the show on Broadway with Karen as Marilyn. The relationship between Karen and Ivy is ice cold. Will they be able to continue to work on the same production?
