    Ugly Betty (CBS) invites you to tell us what your favorite Telenovela is! All you need to do is write your comments below this article and let us know your thoughts!

    A Telenovela is a limited-run television series, similar to Soap Operas. The short television series are run usually for a span of six months, to two years, and are mostly aired primetime, six nights a week. They're most often produced in Latin American countries; however we've found that in addition, they have been aired in Quebec, Canada. The French-Canadian version of the Telenovela is called a Teleroman (tele-novel) which is a French language dramatic television series, also similar to a soap opera.

    These programs have been running for decades, and recently, discovered that plans are underway in the United States, to adapt the telenovela /teleroman concept to the English language television networks! In fact, ABC is said to be planning on turning Betty La Fea (Yo soy Betty, la fea- I am Betty, the Ugly One), a successful Columbian telenovela, into a drama. Ugly Betty has already made the Fall 2006-2007 television season lineup, with Ana MarĂ­a Orozco starring as "Betty".

    We should be seeing the concept in USA, in primetime, running five nights a week for approximately 13 weeks.

    Due to successful ratings of the Telenovela, we're seeing a rise in curiosity as of late. Because of this, plans to update you when we find out more on the scoop!
