Sources confirm that NBC has ordered a fall pilot for Smash, a musical series that centers on an eclectic group of people that band together to perform in a Broadway musical. Michael Mayer (American Idiot) is in negotiation to direct, while Steven Spielberg and his DreamWorks TV team will executive produce.
Grammy-winning and Tony-winning songwriters Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman will write original songs for the show. Sounds like New Directions might need to step things up, huh?
