Steven Spielberg Had No Idea People Watched Smash To Laugh At It

Well, that's embarrassing!

Musical and television lovers world-wide had a love-hate relationship with the first season of Smash.

Part of the fun of watching the confused musical drama was complaining and joking about it with social media. Everyone knew that - or at least, everyone except the show's executive producer Steven Spielberg.

Steve, who came up with the whole idea for the show and pitched it to NBC exec Bob Greenblatt, had know idea people were laughing at his precious show.

When asked if he knew about Smash's social media phenomenon, the Lincoln director admitted: "No I didn’t."

Mildly heartbroken (we're guessing), Steve added:

“Well here’s what’s great about Smash: it’s not a procedural. It’s not medical. It’s not cops. It’s not legal eagles. It isn’t a sitcom. So it does defy what is commercial and popular today. But that’s what Bob Greenblatt wanted to do when he came in and was offered NBC. He wanted to take his cable sensibility and bring it to network television and I think he’s succeeding admirably.”

He did indeed!

At least Greenblatt seems aware of his slip ups. NBC has decided to totally reboot the Smash going into it's second season.

With Jennifer Hudson joining the cast, we're betting this upcoming season will NOT fall flat!

    Another Elite who does not have a clue on HOW the public is reacting to his project. Now you know why video games are drinking Hollywood's milkshakes.

    I actually like Smash. Sure, it's campy and over the top but it's fun. Way more so than Glee, where only the musical numbers are worth watching.

    This show I like…and it's 100 times better than all the crap on tv right now, and that includes all the stupid reality shows, violence, dark, trashy comidies, and non-family shows out there…the music was inspiring, beautiful, and fun…so get over it!

    I thought Smash was pure camp intentionally. Speilberg doesn't actually believe that real women act that way to each other? Lol.

    Re: overthere

    That's the problem. Spellcheck told them "know" IS spelled correctly.

    You can't fix stupid.
