It's official: 'Ugly Betty' moves to Queens

May 16, 2008 |  9:49 am

NEW YORK--Silvercup Studios announced today it will be home to ABC's "Ugly Betty" this summer, after ABC Television Studios decided to move the production to the East Coast to take advantage of new tax credits.

Silvercup executives said the move will bring more than 200 jobs to New York, much to the dismay of the below-the-line workers in Los Angeles, who complain that state officials aren't doing enough to stop runaway production.

The studio, located in a former bakery in Queens, will be bustling this season. Fox's "Fringe" will also be produced at Silvercup, which currently hosts "30 Rock" and "Gossip Girl." Can't wait to hear what happens when America Ferrera, Tina Fey, Joshua Jackson and Blake Lively run into each other in the cafeteria.
