DESCRIPTION:
(from ABC's press release, May 2014) ABC's groundbreaking and multiple Emmy(R) Award-winning hit comedy series, "Modern Family," takes a modern and often hilarious look at the complications that come with being a family today. Jay Pritchett, with his younger wife Gloria, her son Manny and new baby, sits as the patriarch of a large blended family that includes his grown daughter Claire, who has three kids of her own with her husband Phil, and a grown son Mitchell, who adopted a daughter from Vietnam with his husband Cameron. These three families are unique unto themselves, and together they give us a window into the sometimes warm, sometimes twisted embrace of the modern family.
