Salma Hayek Conquers TV

Posted on



Ugly Betty was only the beginning. Salma Hayek, who exec-produces the Emmy-winning ABC dramedy, is further staking her claim in television by developing several new programs through her Ventanarosa Productions. Insiders confirm that ABC has bought two Ventanarosa scripts to be produced by ABC Studios: Guilty is a drama about marriage from Maggie Friedman (Jack & Bobby), and Get Out is a workplace sitcom from Alana Sanko (Murphy Brown). Fox has bought an untitled Ventanarosa drama about a female werewolf, also from ABC Studios, by newcomer Robert Aguirre-Sacasa. And CBS is looking to get into business with Hayek. CBS/Paramount will produce Ventanarosa’s drama script Yo! about an author who uses her immigrant family as her main subjects (from playwright Rinne Groff).
