Steven Spielberg's Marilyn Monroe musical series

By Jennifer Lipman, January 3, 2012

Joining a long list of Jewish creatives involved in Broadway musicals, filmmaker Steven Spielberg is the executive producer of a television show critics have already dubbed "the new Glee".

"Smash", starring Debra Messing and Anjelica Huston, follows the team behind a fictional new musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe. It is set to air in the US next month. Watch to see whether you think it can steal Glee's crown.
