Sweet music for fans of 'Smash': NBC renews the song-and-dance drama for a 2nd season
NEW YORK (AP) ' NBC has smashing news for fans of "Smash."
The network said Thursday its musical drama series has been picked up for a second season.
"Smash" is a much-heralded blend of backstage procedural and song-and-dance numbers. It debuted last month. It is not a ratings smash but has won critical praise and a healthy-size audience averaging 7.7 million viewers.
Series stars include Debra Messing, Anjelica Huston and Katharine McPhee as players in the unrelenting world of Broadway theater.
