Ugly Betty Season 1 (R1) in August
Buena Vista Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Ugly Betty: The Complete First Season (The Bettyfied Edition) on 21st August 2007 priced at $59.99 SRP. America Ferrera stars as vibrant overachiever Betty Suarez a.k.a Ugly Betty in the first season of this hit new series. The bespectacled Betty Suarez is the true beauty in the skin-deep world of high fashion, but she toils as the assistant to dashing womanizer Daniel Meade (Eric Mabius), editor-in-chief of fashion industry bible “MODE.” Both are newcomers to the ultra-competitive fashion scene, and need to constantly beat back attacks from their jealous enemies—fashion diva Wilhelmina (former Miss America Vanessa Williams), her toadying assistant Marc (Michael Urie) and conniving receptionist Amanda (Becki Newton). Away from the glitz of Manhattan, Betty lives in Queens with her family—her loving father Ignacio (Tony Plana), spitfire sister Hilda (Ana Ortiz) and fashion-obsessed nephew Justin (Mark Indelicato)—who lend her support whenever she is in need.
