Potential 'Modern Family' Spin-Off Is Being Discussed


ABC is considering a new show centering on Phil's nemesis, Gil Thorpe, played by guest star Rob Riggle.

"Modern Family" could get a spin-off. Deadline reports that ABC is considering a potential new series built around Gil Thorpe, Phil's (Ty Burrell) nemesis, who was portrayed by guest star Rob Riggle in two episodes last season.

Series co-creator/executive producer Steve Levitan is shepherding the idea with co-executive producers Paul Corrigan and Brad Walsh set to write the script. Details are scarce since the project is still in preliminary stages with multiples ideas discussed.

News of the potential "Modern Family" spin-off comes less than a week after the flagship series nabbed Outstanding Comedy Series at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards. It's the fourth time in a row that the sitcom won the top comedy award at the prestigious event.

The show returned with its fifth season on Wednesday, September 25, garnering 11.4 million viewers.
