Ferrera commented on the reason why they did this: "The issues coming up with the actors’ contracts are very similar to what the writers are dealing with right now, and we have to stay united and stand strong within the creative community for what we believe is fair." On November 25, the cast appeared in a 38-second video for "Speechless Hollywood" in which a black & white camera pulled away from a close up of Ferrera to showing her co-stars sitting next to her as they look directly at the camera without speaking.
Unfortunately on the day the renewal was announced, two of the show's executive producers, Marco Pennette and James Hayman, were let go.
The series is based on Fernando Gaitán's Colombian telenovela Yo soy Betty, la fea, which has had many other international adaptations.
It was produced by Silent H, Ventanarosa, and Reveille Productions partnered with ABC Studios and executive produced by Salma Hayek, Silvio Horta, Ben Silverman, Jose Tamez, and Joel Fields.
The pilot was filmed in New York; seasons one and two were filmed in Los Angeles and seasons three and four in New York City.
During its first three seasons, it aired on Thursday nights, where it was mostly successful.
The departure of Pennette and Hayman added to the constant off-camera turnovers on the series, including the exiting or firing of five writers.
In November 2007, the cast of the series made headlines when they threw their support behind the 2007 Writers' Strike by joining them on the picket line in solidarity.
On May 6, 2008, ABC announced that starting with the third season, Ugly Betty would return to New York City and start production there.
The move was done to bring the authenticity of the great series' setting into the show and to take advantage of a tax credit offered by the State of New York's Governor's Office of Motion Picture and Television Development.
By outlining these bad logo designs (in my opinion) I hope to raise awareness of how important it is to have a strong brand & identity for your business or product.
