Pinoy Ugly Betty Thread #5: Always Betty-er than ever!

from wikipedia...

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 life of Betty Suarez (Ferrera), and her job at popular fashion magazine Mode. 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. Ugly betty was renewed for a second season.

Project Runway winner Christian Siriano poses with Becki Newton while shooting an episode for Ugly Betty, which airs on Thursday, May 1.

“Filming Ugly Betty was amazing,” the 22-year-old designer says. “The cast was the most fun, lively and supportive ever. They’re as fierce and ferocious as they can be. Vanessa Williams is the queen of fierceness and Becki Newton is the princess … I’m inviting them all to my Spring 2008-09 collection — it’ll be a great front row!”

Project Runway judge Nina Garcia will also be playing herself on the episode.
