Cast seems to be adjusting to New York

by Lynn Little

The pilot of ‘Ugly Betty’ was shot in New York City and producers had wanted to shoot the show there. It was just cheaper to shoot it on a back lot in Los Angeles. But since then it has become cheaper to film in New York thanks to a new tax rebate.

The actors are adjusting to paparazzi as well as a lot of attention from bystanders while filming on location. This season we can expect to see more of our favorite characters out of the office - giving us a glimpse into their lives outside of Mode.

Ratings for the second season of ‘Betty’ dropped following its great first season numbers. Producers are hoping the location change will add authenticity of the show and will make it more enthralling to watch. We can expect to see a lot of New York as the backdrop in season three.

So no more green screens and special effects to create the illusion of New York City as now all filming is done in the Big Apple.

Only one more day until the season premiere! Some big changes coming this season as Betty gets a new love interest and Wilhemina makes sweeping changes at Mode. Producers promise a lot will happen very fast, so these first few episodes should be action-packed.

All the TV shows I like are on Thursday nights. I may have to tape ‘Ugly Betty’ and watch later. It will be a late night because I can’t wait to see the premiere. A recap of the show will probably not be ready until Friday but it really depends how late I have to stay up to watch. It will then depend upon how coherent I am at that time.
