Though the show is set in New York City, Ugly Betty is currently filmed entirely in Los Angeles.
That may change next season!
TV Guide is reporting that the show's 'gettin' real' — Ugly Betty productions could be moving to New York by next season!
According to insiders, ABC execs see the East Coast move as both a way to cut costs ("It's generally cheaper to shoot in the city you're trying to portray") and give the show an authentic New York feel.
Makes sense to us!
