Looks like Meadow Soprano is ditching her New Jersey digs for the big city.

Former HBO mafia princess Jamie-Lynn Sigler is joining the cast of Ugly Betty, a recurring role which will place her as the new assistant to Eric Mabius' editor-in-chief Daniel Mead, at New York's chic Mode magazine.

While that particular position was famously occupied by America Ferrera as the brainy, badly dressed Betty, she's was promoted last season to Features Editor of the fictional mag.

Sigler will debut on the show's season premiere this October, says EW, alongside Mabius, Ferrera and Vanessa Williams.

The actress first rose to prominence as the daughter of James Gandolfini and Edie Falco on The Sopranos.
