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?

Indeed, ABC’S Modern Family has been renewed for a fourth season which is currently set to debut this Fall. The Emmy award swimming series with top ratings was one along four series which were given early renewals back in March, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter.
A full synopsis of the series which I only recently had the chance to view has been placed below. The show will be covered extensively on the blog and will be one of the site’s prominent elements in the coming months.
Modern Family examines what it means to be a family in modern day America by portraying a diverse American familythrough the form of momentary type storytelling. The patriarch of the family, Jay Pritchett is a wealthy, old aged yet highly uptight business, man who remarried a passionate, assertive and much younger Columbian women named Gloria, after a failed marriage. Jay must now try to keep up with the energy which his much younger wife has while trying to help her raise her preteen son, Manny, a 11 year old boy who is highly intelligent for his age yet a person who is a romantic. All the while Jay tries to do his best to respect his wife’s Columbian heritage which often clashes in this unique type of interracial marriage.
Meanwhile, there is Claire Dunphy, who is Jay’s uptight and highly anxious daughter . She is married to Phill Dumphy a successful yet klutzy real estate agent and a recognized cool dad .Together the two have raised three children. The eldest is Haley , a highly independent and sociable 17 year old girl , Alex, a 15 year old girl who is socially awkward but a very bright student and Luke, a highly inattentive yet innocent and adorable 11 year old.
The final tree to the family is Mitchell ,Jay’s gay son who is an uptight yet brilliant lawyer. He has been involved in a long term relationship with Cameron Tucker for the past five years, a man who was raised in a farm in Missouri. Together the two have adapted a Vietnamese baby, Lilly and must navigate through the challenges of being first time parents while coping with the additional challenge of interacting with others who can be critical of their unconventional yet passionate relationship.
With themes such as homosexual relationships, interracial marriage, awkward teenagers , raising children , parenting, some obsessive compulsive characters and more the series definitely resonates with a diverse group of audiences who have often experienced the highly comedic yet common experiences in the portrayals on the show. Indeed there are many intriguing yet increasingly relatable situations on the show, from Claire’s disapproval towards Haley’s boyfriend, Dylan and her consequent desire to control her daughter’s life to issues such as Gloria’s conflict with Jay about having fireworks at Christmas as per Columbian tradition as well as issues such Cam’s insecurity about being treated as a woman by Mitchell as a result of his[Cam’s] more feminine behaviour. Such situations allow for the show to convey the strength of family even when there is such a range in diversity which strikes highly amusing yet simultaneously sensitive conflicts. The award winning sitcom has truly witty writing which brings about exceptional performances from the ensemble cast , which each member in the family can resonate with in some way and thus enjoy a few laughs.
With the show having just finished airing its third season on ABC, viewers discovered that Mitch and Cam were unsuccessful in adapting a baby as a result of an unexpected surprise , but it turns out that Gloria has now found herself pregnant. Meanwhile, Haley revealed her surprising plans to move in with Dylan now that she had secured a part time job at the Gap, but was surprised with the sudden turn of events which changed when she discovers that Luke had been hiding her letter of acceptance to college.
Below, is a slideshow which essentially , briefly summarizes the major development s and plotlines as well as other notable moments which occurred in the show throughout the previous third season. A great way to way to reflect on the developments of the past seasons we await for the impending fourth season.
