There’s life after NBC for “Bombshell”: Ovation has picked up the rights to Smash, the Peacock’s short-lived musical that was relegated to Saturdays this spring before it was cancelled.

The arts network will debut the series on July 19 at 8 p.m. ET.

“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.”

Smash will air every Friday on Ovation. Season two will begin in November.
