ABC Considering Modern Family Spin-Off

Fresh off Modern Family's fourth Emmy win for best comedy series, ABC is in early talks for a spin-off series, Deadline reports. While there are still many ideas being considered, one potential concept is for the new series to focus on guest star Rob Riggle, who played Phil's (Ty Burrell) nemesis Gil Thorpe in two episodes last season.

The spin-off proposal is being led by Modern Family executive producers Paul Corrigan and Brad Walsh, who would write the script (they wrote one of Riggle's two Modern Family episodes, "Career Day"). Co-creator and executive producer Steve Levitan would also likely be involved with the project to a degree, while Christopher Lloyd would remain solely at Modern Family.
