The Ugly Betty executive producer will take control once more as executive producer of the new adaptation, which is very similar to Ugly Betty; a drama with comedic undertones. Los Roldan was produced from 2004 to 2005 by Argentina broadcaster Telefe, and has already been produced in Colombia, Mexico and Cyprus

The show centers around a working-class man who saves a woman's life, which results in her hiring him to run her company -- much to the dismay of her family.

No word yet on weather Hayek will make a guest appearance on the show, but she will be lending her voice to Puss In Boots; a story about the events leading up to the sword fighting cat's meeting with Shrek and his friends. Zach Galfinakis will co-star as Humpty Dumpty, and Antonio Banderas will reprise his role as Puss In Boots, due in theaters November 2011.
