America is cheering for vibrant overachiever Betty Suarez a.k.a. Ugly Betty, played by America Ferrera (“The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”). Winner of two Golden Globes®, Ugly Betty received statuettes for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy and Best Actress in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy for Ferrera. Ugly Betty is the ultimate story of a square peg in a universe of round holes. The bespectacled Betty Suarez is the true beauty in the skin-deep world of high fashion, but she toils as the assistant to dashing womanizer Daniel Meade (Eric Mabius), editor-in-chief of fashion industry bible “MODE.”
Both are newcomers to the ultra-competitive fashion scene, and need to constantly beat back attacks from their jealous enemies— fashion diva Wilhelmina (former Miss America Vanessa Williams), her toadying assistant Marc (Michael Urie) and conniving receptionist Amanda (Becki Newton).
Away from the glitz of Manhattan, Betty lives in Queens with her family—her loving father Ignacio (Tony Plana), spitfire sister Hilda (Ana Ortiz) and fashion-obsessed nephew Justin (Mark Indelicato)—who lend her support whenever she is in need.
Get into the MODE with 23 episodes on this 6-disc DVD. “Must-have” bonus features include “Becoming Ugly”, in which Ferrera and the cast discuss what it means to get Bettyfied. Plus, get the real behind-the-scenes scoop with “A La Mode” and “Green is the New Black,” which explore the fashion, sets and magic that go into creating the show. The DVD will also feature deleted scenes, audio commentaries, bloopers and a Spanish audio track.
