Salma Hayek to Produce New ABC Sitcom Based on Argentinean Telenovela

On the heels of her production success with Ugly Betty, Mexican beauty Salma Hayek has announced another project for U.S. audiences.  Hayek will once again work with her Ugly Betty collaborators to bring an adaptation of the Argentinean telenovela Los Roldan.

Los Roldan series tells the story of a working class man catapulted to fame and fortune when he is asked to run the business of the woman whose life he saved.  The telenovela aired back in 2004 in Argentina for one year. 

Once the show is adapted to English language television it will air on ABC through Hayek’s production company.
