Sofia Vergara's stardom just keeps getting bigger.

Even though she still hasn't won an Emmy for her television role, the Colombian actress is considered by many to be the breakout star of ABC's "Modern Family," and now she is set to executive produce a new show for the alphabet network.

Vergara will join the team behind "Killer Women," a new hour-long procedural show surrounding a female Texas Ranger.

The soapy series, which will be an adaptation of the Argentinian series "Mujeres Asesinas," has already gotten a script commitment from ABC. "Mujeres Asesinas" is based on a three-book series of the same name by author Marisa Grinstein.

Her work on the series will only be Vergara's second production credit. She also worked behind the camera on "Amas de Casa Desesperadas," the Spanish-language version of "Desperate Housewives," ehere she also starred as the character Alicia Oviedo.

Vergara recently discussed her famous curves during an appearance on Katie Couric's new daytime talk show, "Katie," in which she revealed her voluptuous figure was an impediment to her career at first, and her management team suggested she get a breast reduction.

"At the beginning, it was hard, and [my publicist] used to tell me, 'Maybe you should get to a more normal, standard size,'" Vergara said.

But the actress said she is proud of her 32F bust, and she recognizes that other woman would love to have her figure.

She added that another reason she refused to get a breast reduction was that her mother would never have allowed her to do it.

"[My mom said], 'God is going to punish you, you can't chop your boobs out. It's crazy. All the women are risking their [lives] to get boobs.' So I didn't do it," she said.

Vergara recently announced her engagement to her longtime boyfriend Nick Loeb, who proposed while the couple was on a family vacation in celebration of Vergara's 40th birthday.
