Of course,this agreement comes merely days after a law suit was first filed last week by adult cast members, Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet, Sofia Vergara, Jessie Tyler Ferguson and Ty Burrel to break the existing contract due to the fact that the cast noticed a void in the terms of agreement that their contracts were to end in violation of California law prohibiting deals that run longer than seven years- a tactic commonly used to have the contracts renegotiated with higher pay.This violation applied to the contracts of the cast as they had signed before June 2009 but had contracts that were ending in June 2016.
The cast members used the opportunity to renogiate and demand a pay increase from their previous $65,000 annual to an income of$200 000 per episode with significant annual increases for the following years.
Although ,the studio made an initial offer of $150,000 along with significant annual increases for the following seasons,reliable sources who are closely involved have noted that the final figures are $160,000 per episode for cast members Vergara, Ferguson, Stone street, Bowen and Burrell. However, with $15, 000 bonuses for each of the cast members for each episode the pay is brought up to $175 000.
Actor, Ed’O Neill who plays the character of Jay Pritchett was already earning above 100, 000 per episode has also demanded a raise in order to show a unified stance with the cast members. In light of the recent negotiations,his income per episode will receive a slight increase as well.
With the deals having been secured,the cast shall be withdrawing the lawsuit filed with the California Superior court.
As for the relationship between the cast and the studio, co-creator Steve Levitan demonstrated his lack of ill feelings by expressing his satisfaction at the favorable outcome which the cast earned, particularly stating that “They’re a huge part of the success of ‘Modern Family,’ and I’m happy they’re going to get what they deserve,” he said.

Indeed, ABC released its premiere schedule earlier this week as reported on TV Guide.
According to the report,the fourth season of Modern Family shall debut on Wednesday, September 26 @ 9;00pm eastern time immediately following the one hour premiere of The Middle.
Refer to our most recent report on what is in store for the coming season @http://abbaskarimjeeweblog.com/2012/07/27/modern-family-producers-reveal-scoops-on-season-4/
With the new season of ABC’S ,Modern Family under production producer Steven Levitan has revealed some details about the forthcoming season.
According to a recent report from TV Guide , the fourth season will start off with Gloria[Sofia Vergara] revealing her pregnancy to the family , to which Mitchell [ Jesse Tyler Ferguson]and Claire[ Julie Bowen] will respond negatively as a result of their lack of desire to have another step sibling.
However, it seem the show’s characters are not the only ones to express surprise at the news. According to the report, the child cast members of the show were unaware of Gloria’s pregnancy until the season finale aired. Nolan Gould [ Luke] commented on his reaction and the circumstances behind how the storyline was kept a surprise stating that”They didn’t tell any of us it was happening,” reveals Gould. “It wasn’t in the script. They filmed Sofia with one camera guy, one sound guy and one hair and makeup guy. I didn’t find out until I watched it.”
“I didn’t know about it,” expressed Rico Rodriguez [ Manny]. “It was a surprise! And I was there when she was filming it!” he said, before dishing on what kind of sib he’d like for his character. “I’d probably want him to take after Manny so I can teach him how to make espressos! Make coffee, how to dress properly, how to write to girls.”
While this development may be brief, it raised many questions regarding the reactions of the other characters to Gloria’s pregnancy. How will Manny respond to the prospect of having to share his mother with a sibling given the two’s close relationship? What will Jay’s response be given how he expressed how he was to old to handle children in the finale? What comical situations will arise from the modern scenario of having Jay raising a child at his age? How will Mitchel and Claire’s disapproval be interpreted by Gloria and what particulates tensions may arise? How will Lilly respond to somewhat less attention from the extended family, with the arrival of a new baby?
How do you feel about the pregnancy storyline?
