Although Smash tanked at the end of its two-season run, NBC isn’t fully ready to dim the lights for the show’s immensely talented actors. Megan Hilty has snagged a role alongside her fellow Smash co-star Sean Hayes on NBC’s upcoming fall comedy Sean Saves The World.
Emmy-Winner Sean Hayes appeared briefly in Smash‘s second season as Terry Falls, the whimsical yet self-conscious actor, who starred in a play alongside Hilty’s character Ivy Lynn. But now, it’s Hilty’s turn to tag along on Hayes’ show. The blonde bombshell will replace Lindsay Sloane on the new fall comeday as Sean’s BFF and colleague, Liz, according to TV Line.
Sean Saves The World is a comedy about a single dad tackling parenting with not the best luck. Sean, who is a recently-divorced gay father, juggles caring for his witty daughter and attending to his time-consuming job at the demands of his zany boss. Fingers crossed the powers-that-be at NBC will throw a few musical numbers into the upcoming comedy just for fun.
