More Latino TV? Q&A With Showrunner Silvio Horta Ugly Betty developer/executive producer Silvio Horta is returning to active TV duty. After fielding interest from several studios, Horta has signed a two-year, seven-figure overall deal with Sony Pictures Television. After Ugly Betty ended its four-season run on ABC in the spring of 2010, "I took big chunk of time off," Horta said. "I wanted to decompress for a while and started working on things of my own, wrote a feature spec." Now he is back just in time for the upcoming development season and is already zeroing in on a couple of projects. One is a show at Fox about three sisters in Miami, the city where Horta was born and raised, with interconnected love lives. Also like Horta, the sisters are Cuban-American. Jennifer Lopez, who has an existing relationship with Fox via American Idol, may come on board as a producer. »
