Smash follows the page-to-stage journey of a Broadway musical based on Marilyn Monroe's life, from the perspectives of the writers, producers, directors and stars involved. The cast includes Debra Messing, Anjelica Huston and American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee, among others.
Thurman, 41, will portray a famous (but somewhat difficult) movie star who considers starring in Marilyn, the fictional musical within the series.
Smash premieres on Monday, Feb. 6 at 10/9c on NBC.
