Disney licenses 'Ugly Betty' to Spanish broadcaster Cuatro















MUMBAI: Disney?s international TV distribution arm, Buena Vista International Television (BVITV), has announced that Spanish free TV broadcaster Cuatro will launch the Golden Globe -winning show Ugly Betty to its viewers later this year.



Yesterday the show won a Golden Globe for Best Television Series ? Musical or Comedy. America Ferrera (who plays Betty Suarez) also received a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series ? Musical or Comedy.



The show was adapted in India by Sony as Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin. Ugly Betty follows Betty Suarez, a seemingly plain, but intelligent and hard-working, secretary at fashion magazine Mode. Few people get to know her 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 over to his son Daniel (Eric Mabius), he hires Betty as his son‘s new assistant, because she‘s the only woman in NYC who Daniel won‘t sleep with. Neither of them knows the ins and outs of the fashion world, but together they‘re a formidable team against the label-wearing sharks who will do anything to see them fail. Ugly Betty is based on Yo Soy Betty La Fea the Colombian telenovela. Cuatro has also picked up the other Touchstone Television series Day Break and Six Degrees. Taye Diggs stars in the thriller Day Break that takes a bad day and multiplies it by infinity. Detective Brett Hopper (Diggs) is having a hellacious day; the kind of day where nothing goes his way and he just can?t wait to put it behind him... only he can?t, because he?s living the same day over and over again. Only when Hopper figures out why his life is broken and how to fix it will he awaken to a brand new day. Six Degrees created by J.J Abrams Lost, is an ensemble drama which follows the notion that everybody is connected to one another by a chain of six people, which means that nobody is a stranger for long. Six very different New Yorkers go about their lives not realising the impact they‘re having on each other - yet. A mysterious web of coincidences will gradually draw them closer, changing the course of their lives forever.
