Smash the music biz

Smash.  I love the show so much, but I’ll admit when it first aired I expected it to be another Glee with more of a story line.  But after a season and a half the prime time drama has proven to be more of an industry commentary than a pile of show tunes.  Sure the songs are amazing and the vocals are top-notch, but the way these characters are back-stabbing and manipulating each other is pretty indicative of the real world, and the real entertainment industry.  I would LOVE to see someone make a Smash 2 about the ins and outs of the music biz.  Like a real life “Jimmy Iovine” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, complete with label tricks, promotional gimmicks and good old fashioned backstabbing!  I smell a hit!
