If you’re eagerly awaiting the series premiere of NBC’s new musical drama Smash and you have Comcast, you won’t have to wait as long as everyone else to see the series premiere. Those with access to Xfinity TV will be able to see the Smash premiere three weeks earlier than its official TV debut on NBC.

Smash is a musical drama that “celebrates the beauty and heartbreak of the Broadway theater.” It stars Debra Messing, Anjelica Huston and Katharine McPhee, among others, and could give Glee a run for its money in the musical-TV department. The show will follow the creation of a Broadway musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe. Given the cast and the subject matter, Smash looks like it could give Glee a run for its money as far as musical television goes.

While most will have to wait until February 6th (10:00 p.m. EST) for the official premiere of the NBC series, others will get to see the premiere in a little over a week. Smash will be available to Comcast customers on January 16th, when subscribers will be able to view the premiere on Xfinity On Demand and n the Xfinity TV iPad app. The series premiere will also be available at XfinityTV.com beginning January 23rd.
