Betty Suarez is a vibrant overachiever with the spirit and the intelligence to live her dream. America Ferrera stars as go-getter Betty, a true beauty in the skin-deep world of high fashion. Two very different cultures collide in this sexy and stylish series about believing in yourself regardless of the odds. Betty Suarez has always had one goal in life: to make it into the publishing business. Despite being smart, hard-working, and productive, her dream has always been shadowed by the fact that she isn’t as traditionally beautiful as her colleagues. But despite it all, she is determined to do whatever it takes to fulfill that ultimate dream.
When a publishing mogul hands over the reins of Mode (the bible of the fashion industry) to his son, Daniel, he specifically hires Betty as his son’s new assistant primarily because she’s the only woman Daniel won’t sleep with. Both outsiders in their own way, Daniel and Betty form an unlikely team, each helping the other navigate the choppy waters of NYC’s fashion scene.
