While Telemundo’s programming has focused largely on their wildly popular Super Series (multiple seasons with approximately 75 episodes each), action-packed Premium (limited) Series like Falcoand El Reclusoand reality competitions like Exatlónand the upcoming La Voz,there has been endless online chatter about Betty En NY. The new comedy, first announced during the network’s Upfront presentation last May, is a reboot of the 1999 Colombian telenovela Yo Soy Betty, La Fea, which in turned inspired ABC’s Ugly Betty. This modernized and New York-set retelling is charming and hilarious with a star-making performance from its leading lady Elyfer Torres as the ordinary but lovable Betty.
