It looks like Salma Hayek, producer of ABC’s hit show Ugly Betty, finally has some competition. Singer Justin Timberlake is creating an English-language version of the hit Peruvian comedy series Mi problema con las mujeres (My Problem With Women).

The show’s main character is José, a 30-year-old who begins going to therapy in an attempt to better understand why his relationships with women continue to fail.

Timberlake, 27, won’t be acting on the show, but rather working as its executive producer. The real question is: Will the series be able to stand up to the comedic powerhouse that is Ugly Betty (ABC)?
