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/
Indeed with the fourth season of Modern Family well underway in production and also having won 14 emmy awards the producers partook in a recent interview with TV Line where details on the forthcoming season were revealed. Indeed from Gloria’s [Sofia Vergara] pregnancy to Haley’s[Sarah Hyland] college situation to other relevant situations there is a great depth of details released.
The season will start off with Gloria revealing her pregnancy to the family and viewers exploring the particular reactions of each of the members, particularly commented that;
“ The big arc this season is obviously Jay[Ed O' Neill] and Gloria having this baby. There’s a lot of preparation that comes with that and also a lot of fallout. Gloria, for example, is gaining weight but not wanting to change any of her outfits, which is funny. Jay is caught up dealing with some anxiety about being a dad again, when thought he was done with those 30 years ago. But also, Mitch and Cam worked really hard to try and get a baby last year, and now these other people — who weren’t really trying — did, and Claire, whose family is getting smaller because Haley’s gone off to college, is a little bit jealous of Gloria getting to be a mom again”.
While it will be exciting to see the challenges that lay ahead for the couple as they cope with changes of their lifestyles and attitudes as a result of the pregnancy, Gloria will deliver her baby at the midpoint of the season.
The producers also outlined other noteworthy storylines which will be a part of the season, including Cameron’s[ Eric StoneStreet] return to teaching as he accepts a post as an elementary school. The season will also feature a promising Halloween episode. It will be interesting to see how Claire will once again celebrate her favourite holiday.
As for Haley, both producers elaborate in how the character will be a part of the show’s coming season for nearly all of the episodes, particularly by explaining some of the emotional issues she copes with while dealing with her increased independence.
‘We have a way in mind of keeping Sarah involved… Once you’re part of this family, you’re always a part of this family indicated producer, Levitan”.
“She’s involved in virtually all episodes. She heads off to college, but it’s not that far away. She stays in touch, and she visits home; it’s kind of a typical first-year-in-college experience, in that she feels a little bit of loneliness and adjustment. She wants her family, but doesn’t want her family. So, it’s a nice change in her life that’s going on, but she’s far from removed from our family, added Lloyd”
