Video: NBC offers peak at revamped 'Smash'

Everything has changed, absolutely nothing’s changed, on NBC’s “Smash.”

Katherine McPhee

The rebooted drama was previewed during singing competition “The Voice” Monday. The program has a new show runner in Josh Safran. Safran took over in April after creator Theresa Rebeck resigned from day- to- day oversight of the show.

In the video Karen (played by Katharine McPhee) and Ivy (played by Megan Hilty) renew their rivalry, and newcomers Jennifer Hudson, Sean Hayes and Jesse L. Martin appear.

The musical drama revolves around the creation of a Broadway musical.

Four of the show's featured players; Brian d’Arcy James, Jaime Cepero, Will Chase and Raza Jaffrey, departed the show in the last year.

Broadway vets Hudson, Hayes (“Will and Grace”), Jeremy Jordan (“Newsies”), Andy Meintus (“Spring Awakening”), Nikki Blonsky (“Hairspray”), Krysta Rodriguez and Martin (“Rent”) will be among the newcomers this season.

“Smash” is executive produced by Marc Shaiman, Scott Wittman, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.

“Smash” will move to Tuesdays for season two, which launches Feb. 5 at 9 p.m. ET. Following that two-hour episode the show will return to Feb. 12 at 10 ET.

Here is the first look at “Smash” season 2:
