As controversial as NBC's 'Smash' may have been, many were sad to see the series close out its two year run in recent weeks, even as ousted creator Theresa Beck continued to blast the series. Thankfully, all is not lost as breakout star Megan Hilty will be right back on NBC this fall joining 'Smash' guest star Sean Hayes in new sitcom 'Sean Saves the World.'
While we anxiously await news of NBC's existing bubble series, the peacock network has officially begun handing out its pilot orders for 2013-2014. Jason Katims' 'About a Boy' remake featuring David Walton and Minnie Driver will go to series, as well as J.J. Abrams drama 'Believe,' Dermot Mulroney's 'Crisis' and 'Will and Grace' star Sean Hayes' new sitcom. Get the latest on NBC's new lineup inside!
Well, that didn't take very long. Just about ever since we knew that Debra Messing was making a regular return to TV, centered on theatre with NBC's 'Smash,' no less, we knew it to be a matter of time before the stars of Messing's former hit 'Will & Grace' put in an appearance. However, Will won't be piping up just yet, rather Jack, as Sean Hayes has signed for a multi-episode arc! Who will he play, though, and will he burst into song?
