Noted songwriting duo Julia Houston (Debra Messing) and Tom Levitt (Christian Borle) get inspiration for a new Broadway show. It quickly gets a producer, Eileen Rand (Anjelica Huston) and a director, Derek Wills (Jack Davenport). Meanwhile, a waitress named Karen Cartwright (Katharine McPhee), who came from a small town in Iowa to make her theatrical dreams a reality, and a Broadway gypsy named Ivy Lynn (Megan Hilty) decide to try out for a lead role.
The show revolves around a group of characters who come together to put on a Broadway musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe. But before that can happen, the people who will try to bring it all together must deal with their own personal acts. The series will feature original music by composers Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.
