Katharine McPhee Previews New Musical Series Smash

06/29/2011 at 12:35 PM EDT

The spirit of musical theater is once again making its way to TV.

Smash – a new NBC series in the same vein as Fox hit Glee – is set to debut this winter, and one of the show's stars, American Idol alum Katharine McPhee, gave viewers a sneak peek during Tuesday night's episode of The Voice.

The show, which also stars Debra Messing and Anjelica Huston, centers on the creation of a Broadway production based on the life of Marilyn Monroe.

McPhee's character, a Midwest-to-New York transplant with stage dreams, finds herself facing off for the lead role with a veteran actress, played by Megan Hilty.

"Behind every star," a narrator says in the clip, "is the story of how they got there and the competition they faced."
