EXCLUSIVE: Becki Newton has signed with UTA. The Ugly Betty standout fielded interest from several major agencies after recently leaving Gersh where she had been a long-time client, ultimately landing at UTA. Following the end of ABC’s Ugly Betty, Newton has been hotly pursued for new comedy series. She recently starred in the NBC anthology hourlong comedy Love Bites and headlined CBS’ comedy pilot Home Grown last year. Newton, who continues to be repped by Management 360, is about to begin filming a high-profile arc on the CBS comedy series How I Met Your Mother.
