Smash: Want to Watch the Pilot Before the Premiere? NBC Is Putting It Online & on VOD

SmashIn a move used more often these days, NBC will be giving viewers a chance to watch the pilot episode of Smash early.

Smash will be premiering on February 6 and is a new drama and musical series that is a behind the scenes look at the Broadway world. A musical writing duo decide to create a play based on the life of Marilyn Monroe. A producer and director become attached and then it’s a race to find the star – the woman who can embody Marilyn. Two young actresses are vying for the part – one is a young waitress trying to make it in the theater, while the other is a more experienced actress who spends most of her time singing in the chorus.

At their recent TCA presentation, NBC announced that the pilot of Smash will be available as a digital download beginning on January 16. It will be available on Apple iTunes, Amazon VOD, Xbox, Playstation, Samsunb MediaHub and Vudu. It will also be available on Comcast’s VOD and on some American Airlines flights. Beginning on January 23, the pilot will be online and can be streamed from NBC.com and Hulu.

After a disappointing fall premiere season, NBC is clearly putting their best foot forward to promote this new show which is, frankly, one of the strongest pilots of the 2011-2012 season. The only question is whether the fans will embrace it. I hope they do.

Until January 16 rolls around and you can view the pilot for yourself, watch an extended preview for Smash here.

Smash premieres on Monday, February 6 at 10:00 p.m. ET on NBC.
