Recently-cancelled NBC series “Smash” lives on, at least in repeats.
Arts channel Ovation has picked up rights to the program, which ran two seasons of episodes before the plug was pulled, according to Entertainment Weekly.
The series will debut on the network starting July 19 at 8pm and with other episodes running every Friday .
“Smash is exactly the kind of art-centric programming that Ovation’s viewers crave,” said Robert Weiss, Ovation’s Chief Creative Officer, in a statement. “This high-quality series fits in brilliantly with our efforts to showcase the powerful role that the Arts play in our lives. Ovation is thrilled to satisfy the wishes of diehard Smash fans and followers to keep the series alive, as well as to provide viewers, who are new to the series, an opportunity to experience the incredible talent, music, dancing, drama and excitement.”
