'Modern Family' Is Having Australia Vacation


'Modern Family' Is Having Australia Vacation
Ty Burrell, Sofia Vergara and other cast members of the hit sitcom are heading down under in February to film the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan's vacation.


"Modern Family" has booked a trip to Australia. The cast of the critically-acclaimed sitcom will travel down under to film the show as the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan is taking a vacation overseas.

20th Century Fox Television has partenered with Qantas airlines to fly the stars, including Ed O'Neill, Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara, from Los Angeles to Australia in February for a two-week shoot. Some producers will head to Aussie later this month to scout locations.

"We are so excited about our trip down under and we promise not to do any 'down under' jokes. We look forward to a fantastic shoot in many exotic locations," says co-creator and executive producer Steve Levitan.

"We loved the family vacation episodes we shot in Hawaii and Wyoming - this one is certainly our most ambitious yet. We promise to feature a kangaroo, a koala and a boomerang. I'm sure there will be lots more, but so far that's all we know about Australia - our American school system is a disaster."

"So we thank Qantas for this amazing opportunity to broaden our horizons," he adds. "Plus it'll be nice to go to a place where everyone looks like Hugh Jackman and Miranda Kerr. Aussie, Aussie Aussie!"

The Australia episode is expected to air in late spring. Besides Hawaii, "Modern Family" has previously filmed a vacation in Wyoming for season 3.

The Emmy-winning show recently cast Aisha Tyler in a guest-starring role as Wendy, a former law school classmate of Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) who runs the legal aid society where he gets a job. The episode featuring the co-host of "The Talk" will air in early March on ABC.
