'Ugly Betty': Plans for musical episode and Lindsay Lohan cameo on hold

Posted on



As Ugly Betty showrunner Silvio Horta gets his, er, show running in the wake of the recently concluded writers strike, some previously reported developments for this season have been postponed, a result of having to cut the number of episodes left through May to just five. “We’re not doing a musical episode,” Horta tells EW.com. “We want to do one, and I think it’s a natural thing for the show, but not right now. Hopefully, next year.” And although reports that Lindsay Lohan was in talks last November to guest star on the series were accurate, Horta says “it won’t likely be this season…. We love Lindsay and hope to work with her in the future, though when or in what capacity remains to be seen.”
