'Modern Family' Cast Still Without New Contracts as Tuesday Table Read Nears (Exclusive)

'Modern Family' Cast Still Without New Contracts as Tuesday Table Read Nears (Exclusive) | TVFiends Daily | Scoop.it

The first Modern Family table read of the new season is set for Tuesday, but it’s not clear that the stars of ABC’s top-rated comedy will show up.


In what has become one of the highest-stakes TV contract renegotiations in years, the six adult actors have yet to secure new contracts with producer 20th Century Fox Television for the series’ upcoming fourth season. Representatives for ensemble members Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara are said to be negotiating together, much as the cast of Friends famously did years earlier. (It's not clear whether sixth member of the main ensemble Ed O'Neill, a TV veteran, will be negotiating with his co-stars because he already makes much more than they do)

Breaking Bad and the Downfall of the White 'Anyman'

Breaking Bad and the Downfall of the White 'Anyman' | TVFiends Daily | Scoop.it

Thus White’s battle to maintain power and supremacy in an increasingly challenging world is arguably symbolic of the modern white American male, who is ever so slightly losing his grip on total power in America. Blacks and hispanics are rising in numbers and women are scoring more college and graduate degrees. Compared to other demographics the white male is still the top dog, but he is far less in control than, say, his father was a generation ago.

Sneak Peek Of 'Alphas' Strong Season 2 | TVFiends Daily | Scoop.it

What developed over the first season of "Alphas" was the vibe that you often see in stories about groups with conflicted agendas: The team may have its own internal squabbles, but they band together to help each other and then decide whether to help (or hinder) outsiders on a case-by-case basis.


To make that kind of dynamic work, the relationships among the team members have to have real stakes and depth, and those elements began developing nicely in the show's first season

On Guthrie: “Someone around here likened her to Mary Tyler Moore, which I thought was kind of funny," he continued. "She’s completely endearing. She’s an ultimate team player.”


On Curry: “I think it was not where her real passion was,” he said. “In her heart of hearts, I think she would admit that. I think her real passion is built around reporting on international stories. It’s tough to convey a sincere interest in something if you don’t possess it. We live in a HD world. Dan Rather used to say the camera never blinks. Well, this is an HD world now, and the camera picks up everything. And you could tell with her, you can tell with any anchor, whether they’re into it or not. And I think we’ve now come up with a role that will play to her strengths."
