The show is filled with juicy storylines as newcomer Karen Cartwright (McPhee) battles established Broadway performer Ivy Lynn (Hilty) for the lead role, meanwhile the show’s Producer Eileen Rand (Houston) searches for money, the composers Julia Houston (Messing) and Tom Levitt (Borle) rush to write songs for the show and Director Derek Wills (Davenport) is just generally nasty.

Smash airs on Foxtel’s W Channel on Monday nights.
