Things have taken quite a turn for esteemed Broadway director Derek Wills (Jack Davenport) on NBC's Smash (Tuesdays at 10/9c). Last season, he was behind one of the most of the buzzed-about upcoming musicals on Broadway while also romantically involved with his leading lady, Ivy (Megan Hilty). Unfortunately for poor Ivy, he even enjoyed a brief affair with Hollywood royalty, and Marilyn replacement, Rebecca Duvall (Uma Thurman).

Cut to one season later and Derek has already lost one job, a remake of The Wiz with Tony winner Ronnie Moore (Jennifer Hudson), his other gig, Bombshell, has been stalled for weeks, and he's been accused of sexual harassment by several stage actresses. Oh, and did we mention that he and Ivy are dunzo? "They almost do a role reversal at one point where she's completely in control and he's almost a little puppy dog for her," Hilty told TVGuide.com last month. »
