Ugly Betty may be ending this week but star America Ferrera has already lined up a new gig: The actress will executive produce Pedro & Maria, a new telenovela for MTV. Ferrara will produce along with Ben Silverman and Quiara Alegria Hudes (In the Heights), who will also write the script. The bilingual romance is described as “the first-ever multicultural, interactive series built for the digital age.” No word on if the titular characters wear braces and/or fugly ponchos.
