Is "Smash" Ending? Debra Messing Has Lined Up Another Gig


It seems like NBC is killing "Smash".  First, they banished it to Saturday nights beginning next month and now, one of its stars, DEBRA MESSING, has lined up another gig.

She's been cast in a CBS sitcom pilot.  Her character is "a ghost-writer for a demanding celebrity chef," who's also "struggling to balance family, life and work."  There's no title yet, but it's in the running to make CBS's schedule next season.

Of course, if NBC opts to KEEP 
"Smash", Debra is under contract to continue, but this is usually a sign that a show is on its way out.  (Two of the writers from "Smash" created the new CBS show.)
