Before making move, Ferrera had been with ICM Partners for the past two-and-a-half years and had previously worked with Endeavor/WME.

Following her breakthrough performance in the indie drama Real Women Have Curves, Ferrera rose to superstar status on television as the lead of the ABC dramedy Ugly Betty, which earned her an Emmy and a Golden Globe.

Most recently, she has appeared in a recurring role on CBS’ drama The Good Wife.

For most of the past three years, since the series end of Ugly Betty, Ferrera had been focused on features and finishing college as her USC studies were interrupted by her casting on the ABC series.

Ferrera is attached to star in and executive produce Damascus, a one-hour drama set at CBS with put pilot commitment. Penned by Nick Osborne, it tells the story of a crusading nun (Ferrera) who practices law on behalf of the less fortunate.

Ferrera’s feature credits also include Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and How To Train Your Dragon franchises, as well as the upcoming Cesar Chavez: An America Hero.
