RATE IT! Ugly Betty on the Move

Television is a magical land where clever production staff can make one locale look like another...'Ugly Betty' is a prime example.

If you think that the fictional magazine that Betty dedicatedly toils for is based in NYC, well...it's not really. Until this Spring, 'Ugly Betty' was actually shot on a soundstage in the very un-Big Applesque surroundings of Los Angeles. With the clever use of green screens and fancy editing techniques, the production crew were able to trick everyone into thinking that Daniel, Betty, Marc, etc were living one fashionably fabulous Manhatten existence.

For season 3, production is moving cross country to New York City -- for real! No more faking it - make believe Manhattan style just got real. New York always makes the perfect co-star as 'Sex and the City', 'Gossip Girl' and 'Law & Order' can attest to. I'm sure Betty and co. will feel right at home.

I'm still angry about Ugly Betty. We're only half way through season two here and they stopped it month's ago because of the damned writer's strike and I'm still waiting for it to come back on!!

I need my Betty fix!! :o(

I didn't know where it was filmed and I don't think I'd be able to tell the difference between New York and L.A anyhooo :S
