Well, the TV series Ugly Betty is pretty much the same story, only even funnier. Betty Suarez, who lives in Queens, gets a job at Mode Magazine. However, she doesn't really "belong" there and faces some issues with other employees who keep reminding her that she's not "like" them.
But Betty is quite smart, and usually helps her boss in the most embarrassing situations.
The funny TV series only lasted for 4 seasons, but stars amazing actors such as America Ferrera (Betty Suarez) and Eric Mabius (Daniel Meade) - 8/10.
