NBC’s latest musical drama, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, reflects the network’s attempt to achieve Fox’s Glee-like success with a modern, TV update to the musical. But lightning rarely strikes twice in the same place.
The network’s previous attempts include Smash, Rise, and Perfect Harmony. Smash aired for two seasons. NBC canceled Rise and Perfect Harmony after only one each. Zoey’s chances depend on whether audiences hunger for more “glee.”
