A new NBC promo highlighting several of the network’s upcoming shows gives fans their first look at Jennifer Hudson in the second season of Smash.
Watch as Jennifer Hudson’s Veronica Moore – a Tony Award winning actress who will impact the lives of Karen and Ivy – gives Katharine McPhee’s Karen some advice in the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment at 0:19.
As NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in the statement announcing Hudson’s role, “Her character will represent someone who reached their Broadway dream but also paid a price for it.”
NBC’s musical drama is in for some changes in the upcoming season. Newsies star Jeremy Jordan, The Addams Family‘s Krysta Rodriguez and up-and-comer Andy Mientus will be joining the cast, which won’t include four characters from season 1.
Smash returns to NBC at midseason.
