NBC unveiled its new fall schedule Monday at its upfronts presentation in New York. Among the new shows announced was "Smash," a midseason drama starring Katharine McPhee ("American Idol") as a Broadway ingénue that is already being compared with "Glee."

The series is executive produced by Steven Spielberg and is centered on a songwriting duo, played by Tony Award nominee Christian Borle ("Legally Blonde: The Musical") and Debra Messing ("Will & Grace"), who are trying to create a Broadway musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe. It also stars Anjelica Huston.

"Smash" is scheduled to run Monday nights midseason after "The Voice."
