Ugly Betty Moves to New York -- It's Official!

The production of Ugly Betty is definitely moving to New York City, announced Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Gov. David Paterson and ABC Studios President Mark Pedowitz.

The ABC series is moving from LA to NY in order to take advantage of the 35% tax credits from the city and state, which will create more than 200 full- and part-time jobs.

The move was joked about on Saturday Night Live this past weekend during Amy Poehler‘s Weekend Update: “Producers of the hit show Ugly Betty are in talks to relocate production of the show to New York City, where it is set. Which is odd, because I thought it was set on a gay spaceship.”
