There Will Be a Key 'Ugly Betty' Reunion on NBC's 'Superstore'
NBC's Superstore is staging an Ugly Betty reunion.
Leading lady America Ferrera announced Wednesday that her former TV father, Tony Plana on the ABC dramedy, will head to her second-year NBC comedy.
"Introducing Amy's dad on Superstore!! It's @tony.plana! What do you mean that's weird? I'm not following... #alternateTVuniverse #TVdad #worldscollide," Ferrera wrote on Instagram when she announced the news.
Plana portrayed Ignacio Suarez, the father to Ferrera's Betty Suarez for all four seasons of the ABC dramedy that co-starred Vanessa Williams, Eric Mabius and Michael Urie.
Plana will appear in the Superstore episode airing Thursday, March 16 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
The duo most recently reunited this past summer at the Austin Television Festival's 10-year Ugly Betty reunion.
