Does anyone still film in LA? 'Ugly Betty' moving to NYC

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Production of ABC’s ‘‘Ugly Betty’’ is moving to New York.

The announcement was made Monday by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Governor David Paterson and ABC Studios President Mark Pedowitz. They say the show will take advantage of a 35 percent tax credit from the city and state when it makes the move from Los Angeles.

‘‘Ugly Betty’’ stars Emmy winner America Ferrera as Betty Suarez, a young woman from Queens who works for a fashion magazine.

The comedy will be filmed in Manhattan and Queens. It is expected to create more than 200 full and part-time jobs.

‘‘Law & Order,’’ ‘‘30 Rock’’ and ‘‘Gossip Girl’’ are filmed in Manhattan.
