DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, May 2013) ABC's groundbreaking and multiple Emmy Award-winning hit comedy series, "Modern Family," takes a modern and hilarious look at the complications that come with being a family today.

These three families are unique unto themselves, and together they give us a window into the sometimes warm, sometimes twisted embrace of the modern family. "Modern Family" stars Ed O'Neill as Jay, Sofía Vergara as Gloria, Julie Bowen as Claire, Ty Burrell as Phil, Eric Stonestreet as Cameron, Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Mitchell, Sarah Hyland as Haley, Ariel Winter as Alex, Nolan Gould as Luke, Rico Rodriguez as Manny and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons as Lily.
