All of us caught up in the gloriously silly soap opera that is “Smash,” starring Bellevue native Megan Hilty, will be delighted to hear that it has been renewed for a second season by NBC.
The show, which also stars Katharine McPhee and Anjelica Huston (don’t hand that lady a drink!), is about the travails of putting together a Broadway musical — and, to a lesser extent, about Debra Messing’s character’s fabulous collection of flowy sweaters.
It’s only NBC’s second show this season to receive an early pick-up for next season; the other being “Grimm.”
