‘Modern Family’: ABC Still Keen On Spinoffs; Karey Burke Won’t Let Hit Comedy Go Quietly

  • Deadline
ABC is not going to let its comedy hit Modern Family go quietly as the long-running series enters its 11th and final season.

ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke admitted to Deadline on Monday that the current storyline of Hayley Dunphy, played by Sarah Hyland, and her newborn baby with her on-again-off-again boyfriend Dylan, played by Reid Ewing, seems tailor-made for a spinoff.

Modern Family, which also stars Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould and Rico Rodriguez, just launched production on the final season and co-creator/exec producer Steve Levitan said they “plan on finishing strong.”

Burke admitted that Levitan doesn’t yet want to discuss spinoffs. “I get smacked down every time I bring it up to Steve Levitan, so I’m going to stay quiet for a little while,” she said. “They’ve just started production on the final season

Can you believe it's been 10 years since we first met Modern Family's Pritchett-Dunphy crew? Time flew by. As the cast wrap up their 11th and final season, on Wednesday, Sofia Vergara (Gloria Prichett) gave fans a look back at the show's beginning by sharing a throwback photo with her costars - Sarah Hyland, Julie Bowen, Ariel Winter, Eric Stonestreet, Ty Burrell, Rico Rodriguez, Ed O'Neill, Nolan Gould, and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons - and comparing it to their first table read. Wow, just look how grown up all the kids are!

Back in February, ABC announced that the longstanding family comedy would end with season 11. "Chris and Steve have created one of the most seminal and iconic comedies in television history," ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke said. "In its final season, there will be more milestone events that anyone who has been a fan of the series won't want to miss.

'Modern Family' cast re-lives old memories

The "Modern Family" cast, including Sofia Vergara, Ed ONeill, Ty Burrell and Sarah Hyland, came together to recreate a photograph, which they took 10 years ago when they started working on the family drama.

Back in 2009, the team -- comprising Burrell, Eric Stonestreet, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Julie Bowen, Vergara, O'Neill, Hyland, Rico Rodriguez, Ariel Winter, and Nolan Gould -- took a group photograph to commemorate the first table read for the first script of the first season of the series.

As they gather for the final chapter, the cast recreated the moment on the occasion of the first table read for the first script of the final season. This time, there is an addition to the family -- Aubrey-Anderson Emmons (Lily).

In one image which was snapped ten years ago, the stars are seen posing with their respective on-screen families.

Vergara, O'Neill and Rodriguez are seen locked in a loving embrace.

IMDb Unveils First Scripted Series ‘You’re Not A Monster’; Sets Sneak Peek At Comic-Con
Exclusive: IMDb announced its first-ever scripted series You’re Not a Monster featuring the voices of Kelsey Grammer, Eric Stonestreet, Aparna Nancherla, Ellie Kemper, Patton Oswalt and others. The animated series is set to premiere this fall, but IMDb will give a sneak peek of the new show featuring iconic movie monsters at Comic-Con later this month.

You’re Not a Monster shows that even movie monsters have emotional issues — because the only thing worse than being undead is being unloved. In the series, Grammer will take a seat in the therapist chair for the first time since his Frasier days as former psychiatrist-turned-vampire who mentors his great-great grandson Max (Stonestreet), a therapist who has inherited his practice.

Each episode will be four to five minutes and will feature Max treating familiar faces in the movie monster world including Frankenstein, The Invisible Man and Medusa as they seek desperately needed therapeutic help.

Emmy Experts say ‘Game of Thrones’ will win Supporting Actress, but here’s why Julia Garner (‘Ozark’) is the front-runner anyway

Emmy Experts say ‘Game of Thrones’ will win Supporting Actress, but here’s why Julia Garner (‘Ozark’) is the front-runner anyway
We’ve polled 24 Expert journalists for their Emmy predictions, and as of this writing a majority of them (13 out of 24) say “Game of Thrones” will win Best Drama Supporting Actress. So how is Julia Garner (“Ozark”) still their front-runner? Because those Experts can’t agree on which “Game of Thrones” actress will win, which illustrates how vote-splitting can throw a race into flux.

Out of the 13 Experts currently betting on “Game of Thrones” in this category, six say Lena Headey will win, six say Maisie Williams, and one says Sophie Turner. Add them all up and you’ve got an Emmy favorite, but none of them individually are predicted by as many Experts as Garner, who is backed by these nine journalists: Lynn Elber (Associated Press), Joyce Eng (Gold Derby), Ed Martin (Media Village), Mary Murphy (Gold Derby), Nikki Novak (Fandango), Matt Roush (TV Guide Magazine), Kaitlin Thomas (TVGuide.com

Emmy spotlight: Don’t underestimate Hugh Laurie (‘Veep’) as beguiling and formidable foe to Julia Louis-Dreyfus

“What the **** are you?” asks an infuriated Tom James (Hugh Laurie) of Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) in his expletive-filled final scene in the series finale of “Veep.” Laurie, who joined the cast of the three-time Emmy-winning Best Comedy in the recurring role of former senator and Selina’s flame in the fourth season, plays a particularly prominent role in the final seven episodes of the show as one of Selina’s most formidable rivals for their party’s nomination for President.

Despite his increased presence in the farewell season, Gold Derby’s combined odds currently have Laurie far afield from a Comedy Supporting Actor nomination. Based on Laurie’s performance and his track record at the Emmys, though, we may be underestimating his prospects for a “Veep” farewell bid. Indeed, Laurie’s simultaneously charming, smug, and slimy performance as Tom is one of the many highlights of the show’s last batch of episodes,

Bo Report: ‘Toy Story 4’ works its magic as Damon Gameau’s ‘2040’ hits $1 million

Toy Story 4’ (Photo credit: Disney/Pixar).

The fourth installment in the Disney/Pixar Toy Story franchise has smashed the opening weekend record for an animated title worldwide, ending a run of sequels and reboots which audiences showed they did not want or need.

Directed by Josh Cooley, Toy Story 4 grabbed $244.5 million, beating Incredibles 2‘s $235.8 million, although the $120.9 million domestic debut was only the fourth biggest for the genre, trailing Incredibles 2 ($182 million), Finding Dory ($135 million) and Shrek the Third ($121 million).

It was a buoyant weekend in Oz as Toy Story 4 and Universal/Illumination’s The Secret Life of Pets sequel drew kids and families and fans of Indian cinema turned out for Kabir Singh and Shadaa.

However Child’s Play, the remake of the 1988 horror movie about a ghastly voodoo doll named Chucky, found few takers for Roadshow. Among the specialty releases, Sony’s Never Look Away

5th time’s the charm for Tituss Burgess (‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’) at the Emmys? 5-time nominees tend to win

5th time’s the charm for Tituss Burgess (‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’) at the Emmys? 5-time nominees tend to win
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” ended its run earlier this year (not counting an interactive special being produced for 2020), which means this is the last chance for Tituss Burgess to win Best Comedy Supporting Actor. If he’s nominated again this year it will be his fifth bid in a row, and though he hasn’t won yet, most actors who have been nominated that many times have prevailed at least once.

Out of 22 actors who have been nominated for 5 or more Emmys for Best Comedy Supporting Actor, 16 have won. That includes the all-time nominations leader, David Hyde Pierce (“Frasier”), who contended 11 times and won 4. On paper that sounds like great news for Burgess, who is exactly the kind of larger-than-life scene-stealer that often wins this award. Just look at broad comic performers like Michael Richards (“Seinfeld”), Sean Hayes (“Will and Grace”) and Eric Stonestreet (“Modern Family”), who won this category six times between them.

‘Now Apocalypse’ could be the queerest comedy in Emmy history

‘Now Apocalypse’ could be the queerest comedy in Emmy history
“Now Apocalypse” has the potential to be the queerest comedy in Emmy history. The awards — and TV in general — have been making strides in Lgbt representation in the last three decades, from 1990s winners like “And the Band Played On” and “Ellen,” to 2000s groundbreakers like “Will and Grace” and “Angels in America” and 2010s champs like “The Normal Heart” and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace.” But Best Comedy Series doesn’t have quite as many queer characters on the forefront this year.

A nomination for “Now Apocalypse” would change that to say the least. While there are top Emmy contenders for Best Drama Series (“Killing Eve” and “Pose“) and Best Limited Series (“A Very English Scandal“) with queer leading roles, the highest ranked comedy in our odds with a gay lead is “Schitt’s Creek,” a dark horse in the category with 68/1 odds. But “Apocalypse” is so unabashedly queer

The Secret Life Of Pets 2 Review, Cast and Crew And Rating

Like usual, The Secret Life Of Pets 2 suffers from a sequel syndrome. Despite being interesting and pleasantly amusing, the spark of its first edition is definitely missing, and that is solely because the narrative literally appears packed with fluff.

The story takes off from the first edition. Max (Patton Oswalt) and Duke (Eric Stonestreet) are now friends and in comfort zone till their owner Katie gets married to Chuck and has a baby, Liam. Everything is fine when Liam comes home, but when Liam, an over-energetic baby, begins to crawl and move about, Max spends most of his days in hiding. Till one fine day, Liam hugs him and says, "I love you Max."

From that day onwards, the initially wary Max takes to the role of the little one's protector. Soon the responsibility becomes so stressful for Max that it makes him a nervous wreck. After a visit to the pet therapist,

Emmy spotlight: ‘Modern Family’ deserves a return to Best Comedy Series race with its best season in years

Emmy spotlight: ‘Modern Family’ deserves a return to Best Comedy Series race with its best season in years
After “Modern Family” won a record-tying five consecutive Emmy victories for Best Comedy Series, the laffer soon fell out of favor with voters, dropping out of the main categories entirely last year. But it deserves a return to the race for its 10th season, the best since the show’s glory days.

For years, there wasn’t an eligible Emmy category “Modern Family” didn’t compete in, let alone win. In addition to its series victories, the show would regularly take home prizes for writing, directing and acting for Ty Burrell (2011 and 2014), Eric Stonestreet (2010 and 2012) and Julie Bowen (2011 and 2012), racking up 21 trophies out of 67 bids. Yet its fortunes began to dip in the sixth season, where it went from receiving double-digit nomination tallies to just six. That dipped down to four in year seven, three in year eight and just one in year nine (for Half-Hour Sound Mixing). So to

Selena Gomez Visits Fans and Competes in a Softball Game For Children's Mercy Hospital

Selena Gomez took a meaningful trip to Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo, on Friday. The 26-year-old singer hung out with a group of fans in celebration of the hospital's Big Slick 2019 Celebrity Weekend. She first met with some of the patients at the health center to chat, play games, and pose for a few pictures before participating in a friendly game of softball to raise money for pediatric research. Other stars such as Paul Rudd, Jason Sudeikis, Ariel Winter, and Eric Stonestreet also took part in the fun-filled weekend.

In one video posted on singer Chris Daughtry's Instagram story, Selena - rocking a Kansas Royals jersey - jokes that she couldn't win a softball game alone, but thankfully has a whole team to work with. "I'm not gonna win, but maybe we are," she says in the clip.
