Christopher Gorham, America Ferrera, Ugly Betty

ABC/MICHAEL DESMOND

Ugly Betty is going to start living where it breathes.

In a cost-cutting maneuver, the hit ABC comedy, which largely takes place in Manhattan and features a Queens-bred heroine, is packing up its L.A. shop and actually moving production to New York, E! News has confirmed.

Emmy winner America Ferrera and the rest of the cast and crew were informed of the venue change just yesterday. Production on Ugly Betty's third season—featuring a Lindsay Lohan guest arc in the first five episodes—is scheduled to kick off June 30 in NYC.

The series' second-season finale, which will introduce Lohan's Mean Girls-style character, airs May 22. (For more scoop on the cast's reaction to the big move, check out Watch With Kristin.)
