NICK JONAS AND TONY AWARD WINNER BERNADETTE PETERS TO GUEST STAR ON NBC'S MIDSEASON MUSICAL DRAMA "SMASH"

NEW YORK - October 6, 2011 - Popular recording artist Nick Jonas ("Jonas") and two-time Tony Award winner Bernadette Peters ("Gypsy") will guest star in NBC's new musical drama "Smash," which will air on Mondays at 10-11 p.m. ET beginning February 6. Both actors will sing in the respective episodes in which they appear.

Jonas will be playing Lyle West, a hot sitcom star who started his career as a child actor in a Broadway show written by Tom (Christian Borle) and directed by Derek (Jack Davenport), Peters makes an appearance as Leigh Conroy, Ivy's (Megan Hilty) Tony award-winning mother who was once a theater sensation but now lives vicariously through her daughter.

"Smash" is a musical drama that celebrates the beauty and heartbreak of the Broadway theater as it follows a cross-section of dreamers and schemers who all have one common desire - to be a "Smash." The series centers on a desire to create a Broadway musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe and stars Emmy Award winner Debra Messing ("Will & Grace"), Katharine McPhee ("American Idol"), Oscar winner, Anjelica Huston, "Prizzi's Honor"), Megan Hilty ("9 to 5: The Musical"), Christian Borle ("Legally Blonde: The Musical"), Jack Davenport ("Pirates of the Caribbean" films), Tony Award nominee Brian d'Arcy James ("Shrek The Musical"), Jaime Cepero ("Porgy and Bess") and Raza Jaffrey ("Sex and the City 2," "MI-5").

From Universal Television in association with DreamWorks Television and Madwoman in the Attic, "Smash" stemmed from an idea of executive producer and multiple Emmy and Oscar winner Steven Spielberg ("ER," "Schindler's List"). The series' executive producers also include acclaimed playwright/screenwriter Theresa Rebeck ("Mauritius," "NYPD Blue"), David Marshall Grant ("Brothers & Sisters"), Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (Oscar-winning "Chicago," "Hairspray"), Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey ("United States of Tara," "The Borgias") and Tony and Grammy Award winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman ("Hairspray," "Catch Me If You Can"). The pilot was directed by Tony Award winner Michael Mayer ("Spring Awakening," "American Idiot").
