Katharine McPhee was spotted in NYC this week filming scenes for the upcoming NBC musical pilot Smash. The scenes were shot in Times Square, and the 27-year-old American Idol finalist looked lovely in a cherry-print dress and black leather jacket.
Smash is the brainchild of Steven Spielberg, who is also the show’s executive producer. Smash tells the story of a group of people who work to develop a Broadway musical inspired by Marilyn Monroe. It’s tentatively set to air later this year.
There’s some big name celebs taking part in making Smash a success including Megan Hilty, Christian Borle and Raza Jaffrey, “Will and Grace” star Debra Messing, Jack Davenport and Angelica Huston.
Are you looking forward to watching NBC’s Smash later this year? How do you think it will do up against the hit TV show Glee?
