NEW YORK – The PBS series “Independent Lens” says actress America Ferrera will host its ninth season of documentary films. Ferrera follows past “Independent Lens” presenters including Susan Sarandon, Terrence Howard and Edie Falco. PBS says Ferrera will make her debut when the award-winning anthology series begins its new season of 27 documentaries on October 19, 2010.
Ferrera won an Emmy, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award for her portrayal of Betty Suarez on ABC’s “Ugly Betty,” which wrapped last year after four seasons.
The 26-year-old announced her engagement to longtime boyfriend, Ryan Piers Williams, in June.
