Modern Family star Sofia Vergara is moving into producing.

The Colombian actress is set to adapt Argentine series Mujeres Asesinas for America's Abc network, as well as taking on the role of executive producer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show, translated as Killer Women, is based on murders committed by women in Argentina and is a huge hit in South America.

Vergara started her career in Colombia as a model/actress, eventually playing Alicia Oviedo on the local version of Desperate Housewives.
