“A few years ago, a TV show might have been unthinkable to me,” admits the Oscar winner, whose husband, sculptor Robert Graham, passed away in 2008. “But now, as a single person, I don’t want to just sit in our house regretting what’s passed. This feels like I’m embarking on a new chapter.” Huston’s full-time TV debut will be as a theater producer on NBC’s buzzed-about drama Smash, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a Broadway musical. “Television is where the great parts are for women my age,” she says emphatically. “But I begged the writer to make my journey a pleasant one—since my life generally reflects my art.”
