In real life, America Ferrera found love with Ryan Piers Williams, a movie producer whom she married in June of 2011.

But in the new web series "Christine," America plays Christine, a young, single woman trying to find Mr. Right during a busy evening of speed dating.

In the 12-part series, which airs on a new YouTube channel called "WIGS," Ferrera's character struggles with her confidence while meeting man after man.

And according to the series' star, America Ferrera, Christine realizes she wants different things from different men. "With each guy that sits in front of Christine, the relationship becomes something completely different...and unexpected," she said. "And I think she's taken by surprise by it and so are the men that are sitting across from her."

Those "men" include Eric Balfour ("The O.C"), Gary Dourdan ("CSI: Crime Scene Investigation") and Martin Starr ("Freaks and Geeks").

Ferrera is of course best known for her Emmy-winning role on the ABC comedy, "Ugly Betty" (2006-2010).
