Steven Spielberg's musical TV show 'Smash' headed to Broadway

"'Smash' is near and dear to my heart," Spielberg said.

Steven Spielberg's former NBC musical TV series "Smash" is hoping to make a splash on the Great White Way.

"Smash, A New Musical Comedy" will follow the arc of the TV show -- a play-within-a-play of sorts -- about staging the musical "Bombshell," about the life of Marilyn Monroe.

The show only lasted two seasons on TV as it fought low ratings. The show aired 32 episodes from 2012 to 2013.

The small-screen version's composers, Tony and Grammy winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, will take part in the Broadway bow, which will incorporate some of their TV handiwork when the show gets to the stage.

The Broadway version will reportedly track along with characters who were played on the series by Debra Messing and Christian Borle, the writers of "Bombshell," and the musical's leads, who were played by Megan Hilty and Katharine McPhee.

No word on whether any of the TV stars will make a reappearance on stage.

"I am personally thrilled to be a part of this musical and its road to Broadway. Smash is near and dear to my heart, and it seems fitting that a new musical inspired by what we did on the show would eventually come to the stage," Spielberg said in a statement.

He added, "I'm beyond thrilled to be working with this incredible creative team and my producing partners, who began the Smash journey with me over ten years ago."
