Being able to portray Gloria, a Latina on the hit show “Modern Family,” Sofia Vergara has put the spotlight on Latino culture in Hollywood. Aside from all the success she has achieved on the comedic series, the Colombian hasn’t forgotten her roots.
She recently filmed a telenovela made up of five episodes which will be released in July. The show will broadcast throughout Latin America with the exception of Brazil.
“I had a lot of fun making this special project and I hope the Latin American people will enjoy it,” said Vergara in a statement released by Latin World Entertainment (LatinWE). “As of right now I can’t give any details. It’s a surprise I have reserved for you all.”
Not many details have been revealed about the telenovela, including the title and her role. All we know is that it will be on television and in Latin America. There was, however, a picture of Sofia Vergara on set during the filming released by Nevarez Communications. She is wearing a white dress as she either exits or enters the car and it looks as though she is talking to a police man.
Sofia Vergara produces new Argentine series on ABC
Also in the works for Sofia Vergara is another ABC show.
