Sat.1 in an 'Ugly' mood


COLOGNE, Germany -- Berlin-based network Sat.1 has picked up ABC's Golden Globe-winning "Ugly Betty."

The ABC hit is based on the Colombian telenovela "Yo Soy Betty, La Fea," the same series that Sat.1 adapted in 2005 in its local hit "That's Life."

"That's Life" has been a huge success for Sat.1, drawing an audience share of up to 22% in its daily slot.

"Ugly Betty" will premiere April 27 in Germany and, like Sat.1 pickups "Navy NCIS"and "Criminal Minds," will be simulcast in high definition.
