Poland Commissions Betty, la fea Sequel


RCN Television and Fremantle have sealed a deal for a sequel to the Polish version of Yo soy Betty, la fea on Discovery-owned TVN.

RCN and Fremantle first adapted the show in Poland under the local title BrzydUla in 2008. The new commission marks the first-ever international sequel. An original 235 episodes were produced, and an additional 180 are planned.

Yo soy Betty, la fea has been broadcast in 180 countries, dubbed into 25 languages and has seen 19 adaptations around the globe.
