Welcome Home to NYC "Ugly Betty"

Governor David A. Paterson, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and ABC Studios President Mark Pedowitz announced yesterday that the production of the popular ABC drama “Ugly Betty” will be moving to New York City to take advantage of the 35 percent tax credits provided by the State and City. This move marks the first time an established television show has made a move to New York City and will create over 200 full and part-time jobs.

The expansion of the State’s tax credit program tripled the percentage of qualified film production costs eligible for the credit from 10 percent to 30 percent and extends the program to 2013. Coupled with the City’s 5 percent ‘Made in NY’ tax credit, film companies can now take advantage of 35 percent of tax credits allowing New York to once again reclaim its spot as the premiere location for film production. Film and TV production contribute $5 billion per year to New York City’s economy. Production in NYC is scheduled to begin June 30th.

'Ugly Betty' stars Emmy-winner America Ferrera as Betty Suarez, Eric Mabius as Daniel Meade, Tony Plana as Ignacio, Ana Ortiz as Hilda, Ashley Jensen as Christina, Becki Newton as Amanda, Mark Indelicato as Justin, Michael Urie as Marc, Judith Light as Claire Meade, Christopher Gorham as Henry, Rebecca Romijn as Alexis and Vanessa Williams as Wilhelmina Slater. Freddy Rodriguez is a recurring guest star as Gio.
