Sporting cherry red spectacles and bright blue braces, sunny Betty Suarez turns the fashion world on its ear in “Ugly Betty: The Complete Third Season” on DVD on Sept. 22, from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. This six-disc set contains every episode from the hit show’s spectacular third season, as well as deleted scenes, bloopers and entertaining features that go behind the scenes of television’s cheerful skewering of high-fashion magazine publishing.
There are underdogs and then there’s Betty Suarez. In the snooty world of high fashion, Betty is the ultimate “fish-out-of-water.” Her efforts to fit in with her colleagues at a glossy magazine may bring unintentionally hysterical results, but they also have audiences rooting for their favorite fashionista. In Season Three, Betty’s success shocks her co-workers at Mode—she’s leaving the old neighborhood in Queens for a Manhattan apartment and a slot at YETI (the prestigious Young Editors Training Institute).
But it wouldn’t be Betty without some hilarious setbacks along the way! “Ugly Betty” stars America Ferrera as Betty Suarez, Eric Mabius as Daniel Meade, Tony Plana as Ignacio, Ana Ortiz as Hilda, Ashley Jensen as Christina, Becki Newton as Amanda, Mark Indelicato as Justin, Michael Urie as Marc, Judith Light as Claire Meade and Vanessa Williams as Wilhelmina Slater.
