ABC is developing a comedic TV series on the life and times of Sofia Vergara as a single mother. The series ‘Raising Mom’ is being developed by ABC, home to the award-winning ‘Modern Family’ series in which Vergara stars.
In real life the 41-year-old Colombian actress is mother to 21-year-old Manolo that she raised as a single mother after divorcing at age 20.
The show was developed by Vergara’s production company Latin World Entertainment. This is one of a series of projects Vergara and her business partner in Latin World, Luis Balaguer, have developed and successfully pitched. Most recently Fox agreed to partner with Vergara on a TV comedy ‘Speak America’ that centers around the life of a Latina teacher who helps students get rid of their accents.
The actress’ latest film project ‘Machete Kills’ premiered this week. Vergara plays the role of Madame Desdemona.
