The cast and crew of ABC's "Modern Family" may come to Australia to shoot an episode of the new season. The creative and the production team, however, is still working on the details, and nothing has been officially confirmed.
Modern Returns this Fall for its Fifth Season
Steve Levitan, executive producer of "Modern Family," said to Fairfax that they would like to bring the hit sitcom to Australia. The plans for the episode have yet to be finalised.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports that a spokesperson of 20th Century Fox, which produces "Modern Family," did not provide any information, saying that "it was too soon to confirm anything."
According to the report, the production team is currently discussing and evaluating the logistics of bringing cast and crew to Australia for an episode's shooting.
The news of "Modern Family" intending to film down-under has surfaced from time to time, but there has never been any confirmed news. Till there is no official confirmation, it is better not to get too excited about the prospect of seeing the cast of "Modern Family" in Australia, shooting an episode or two.
"Modern Family" will return on Wednesday, September 25 for its fifth season, with one-hour premiere consisting of two episodes, "Suddenly, Last Summer" and "First Days." The upcoming season will tackle gay marriage.
"In the first half of the hour, "Suddenly, Last Summer," the family is in the throes of summer activities: Phil and Claire are trying to orchestrate a kid-free week by coordinating Luke's camp with Haley's beach trip and Alex's volunteering excursion; Jay and Gloria are getting Manny ready for his first solo trip back to Colombia; and Mitch and Cam make it a summer to remember," according to the synopses of the two episodes released by ABC.
"In the second half-hour, "First Days," Luke and Manny have their first day at high school, which proves to be harder for Phil and Gloria than for the boys. Elsewhere, Claire makes her big return to the workforce at Jay's closet company and is a little rusty on her first day, and Cam starts a new substituting gig at the high school, leaving Mitch to try to juggle Lily's first day in 1st grade and a very important meeting at work."
In Australia, "Modern Family" airs on Ten Network and Foxtel.
