Messing will play Shira, a married mom who struggles to balance family, life and work. She'll also act as an executive producer for the project.
NBC recently announced that Smash would be moving to Saturday nights but that all remaining episodes of this season would be aired. That, combined with Messing's new gig, doesn't bode well for the show's future.
Are you disappointed about the end of Smash? And are you looking forward to seeing Messing on a different show?
