The struggling Smash, which NBC is moving to Saturdays starting April 6, will close out its second (and likely final) season in late May or early June by sending the main characters to the Tony Awards. A trip to Broadway's big night "was part of the pitch that got me the job," says executive producer Josh Safran, who took over as showrunner this season. "It's an event that doesn't necessarily require you to be nominated to be there. People attend, perform and present awards. And there is a song that involves the entire lead cast."
When a white girl and a black boy coincidentally vanish on the same night, Jack attempts to counteract Vivian's prediction that the media and FBI will focus more on the white girl's case. Despite Jack's attempts to generate press on both cases, the girl's disappearance garners all of the media attention and, as a result, gets a steady stream of leads. As Vivian anticipated, Jack's superior, Van Doran, orders Jack to allocate more resources to follow up on the leads in the girl's case. This requires diverting FBI attention away from the search for the boy, causing his mother to question Jack. watch
