DEVELOPMENT STAGE: ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release) America was built by dreamers. That's why Colombia's biggest female soap opera star has come to conquer the acting world of New York City. Just what the big apple needed, another out-of-work actor. Bursting with ambition and excitement Sofia moved to America. But with her visa expiring and no acting jobs in sight, she's getting pretty desperate. Or pretty and desperate. Enter Tony Wilson, an ex-stock broker with Martha Stewart's legal problems. He needs five grand fast, which is exactly what a green card marriage pays upfront. Talk about coincidence! So Sofia and Tony are married, for better or worse and for the next three years. Now after the ceremony, the truth comes out. She forgot to tell him about her 7-year-old son and her foul-mouthed parrot; he forgot to tell her about his girlfriend. You'd think someone would have told them about the surprise visits from the INS. From Executive Producers Damon Wayans and Don Reo comes a family comedy about dreams, reality, love, and redemption. Starring Hispanic sensation Sofia Vergara, this makeshift family is totally unique yet completely relatable.
