ABC Developing Another Telenovela With Salma Hayek

Variety is reporting that UGLY BETTY executive producer Salma Hayek and her producing partner Jose Tamez have sold an adaptation of the Argentinian telenovela LOS ROLDAN to ABC through their Ventanarosa shingle.

For this U.S. adaptation, they're turning to former UGLY BETTY scribes Veronica Becker and Sarah Kucserka, who are on board as writers and exec producers. Hayek and Tamez will exec produce; ABC Studios is behind the project.

LOS ROLDAN follows a working-class man who saves the life of a woman. She then hires him to run her company -- much to the chagrin of her family. Local versions of LOS ROLDAN have already been produced in Colombia, Mexico and Cyprus.
