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 JordanThe 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.

    im sorry..but that show Revolution looks like a big rip off of the Hunger Games.

    • Jess

      No it doesn’t. Just because it has a girl with a crossbow doesn’t mean it’s a rip off.

  • Mitchel Clow

    Wow, I’m impressed by how quick they went from “first day of shooting” to this (small) promo footage. That was a quick turnover!

    • Andrea Salazar

      Me too! I wasn’t expecting to hear/see much about Smash in the recent future other than casting news. I’m hoping NBC’s advertising strategy will be to tease us with tiny clips throughout the fall.
