Ugly Betty (ABC 2006-2010, America Ferrara, Ana Ortiz)

Published

on

In the superficial world of high fashion, image is everything. Styles come and go, and the only constants are the wafer-thin beauties who wear them. How can an ordinary girl — a slightly plump plain-Jane from Queens — possibly fit in?

If you took a moment to get to know Betty Suarez, you’d see how sweet, intelligent and hard-working she is. But few people do because, in the world of fashion, Betty is the oversized square peg in the petite round hole. When publishing mogul Bradford Meade hands the reigns of his fashion magazine, Mode, over to his son, Daniel, he specifically hires Betty as his son’s new assistant – mostly because she’s the only woman in NYC Daniel won’t sleep with. Though this “player” is reluctant to accept her at first, Betty’s indomitable spirit and bright ideas will eventually win him over. Neither of them really knows the ins and outs of the fashion world, but the two of them are a formidable team against the label-wearing sharks who will do anything to see them fail.

From ABC’s press release, March 2010… It’s the end of an era, but the beginning, Betty hopes, of something wonderful. In the award-winning series’ finale, which also features appearances by familiar faces from the past, Betty finds it hard to tell Daniel important news about her future. When she does, his reaction surprises her, but not Claire. Justin and Bobby enthusiastically consider taking advantage of a softening real estate market by apartment-hunting in Manhattan, but Hilda’s resisting even the most amazing places. Amanda grapples with the death of her dog, Halston, and Marc wonders if he’ll ever have a successful relationship, on the series finale of “Ugly Betty,” WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
