- NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt told reporters yesterday that the new season will also feature a new musical.
- "It’s going to be a great season,” Greenblatt previewed. “There’s a big new storyline with a second musical as Bombshell is heading toward Broadway. There’s a little musical that comes out of the blue that’s like Rent and takes on an enormous amount of momentum and pulls in some of our regular characters".
- "By the end of the season it will be giving Bombshell a run for its money and it sets up a great competitive thrust - not only for the story, but for our characters. There’s a group of younger characters that come with the new musical that will give the whole series [more] life. One [of the new characters] becomes a love interest for Katharine McPhee. It’s a real shot in the arm for the show.”
