YOU CAN DISCUSS HERE ALL ABOUT THE SERIES UGLY BETTY...

Ugly Betty is a Golden Globe and Peabody Award winning American television dramedy series starring America Ferrera, Vanessa Williams, and Eric Mabius. It premiered on September 28, 2006, on ABC in the United States. The series follows the daily work and personal lives of Betty Suarez (Ferrera) and her boss Daniel Meade (Mabius).

The series is based on the Colombian telenovela Yo soy Betty, la fea ("I am Betty, the ugly"), also simply known as "Betty la fea" (literally "Betty the Ugly") written by Fernando Gaitán (also author of Café, con aroma de mujer). It is adapted into a New York City setting by creator/developer Silvio Horta and co-producers Salma Hayek and Ben Silverman, whose production companies Silent H, Ventanarosa and Reveille respectively partnered with ABC Television Studio (formerly Touchstone Television) to create the hour-long program for American audiences. Hayek appears on the show as Sofia Reyes, in addition to playing a cameo role as an actress on a fictional telenovela watched by the main character's family in early episodes.

Of all the adaptations of Betty La Fea, the original Colombian telenovela, Ugly Betty is probably the most different, but it remains true to the original in spirit. It is similar to another ABC dramedy series, Desperate Housewives, in that it combines elements of drama, comedy, mystery, farce, camp, soap opera, and satire, though in a lighter way. The show is filmed like a traditional network drama (with motion picture film), rather than the videotape production of the original series.
