America Ferrera in a new TV show?

America+Ferrera+luN79HNnyWHm Ugly Betty star America Ferrera has graduated from college earlier this week and is now ready to fully commit herself to acting. The actress might star in TV show Pedro & Maria, which is actually a modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

The series synopsis states: ”Pedro and Maria are two opposites cut from the same cloth caught in the trap of forbidden love. He is a second generation Dominican from the mean streets of Washington Heights. She is a Puerto Rican whose parents made millions as real estate developers. It’s a clash of the haves and the have-nots, of Main St vs. Wall St, set against a volatile cultural backdrop that fiercely believes neither side should mix with the other.”

America-Ferrera-620x412Ferrera managed to do acting and get a college degree although she had some doubts earlier. She thought she had to give up acting if she wanted to get her education but one of her professors encouraged her to do both.  ”I always wanted to go to college and get my education although I always wanted to be an actor. I never knew how those two things would work with each other and this was revealed to me in my first year of college here (University of Southern California),” America said.
