Modern Family’ Stars File Lawsuit Against Studio

A table read for Modern Family had to be canceled after Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Ty Burrell filed suit against TV studio bosses in a dispute over their contracts.

The show’s adult stars claim their current longterm deals with executives at 20th Century Fox TV are in violation of California labor laws, which state personal service contracts can last no longer than seven years.

They are asking a judge to declare their prior agreements null and void, allowing them to renegotiate fresh contracts with increased salaries.

The main castmembers, who are said to have made $60,000 each per episode for season three, reportedly rejected TV producers’ recent offer of $150,000 each per episode and they are seeking a considerable increase in pay. They are also asking for more freedom to take on non-Modern Family work, an option which is said to be seriously limited in their current contracts.

A planned table read for the first taping of the upcoming fourth season had to be canceled on July 24th as a result of the legal wrangle. The lawsuits were filed in Los Angeles.

The show’s other adult star, Ed O’Neill, is believed to be in a different salary level than his co-stars, reportedly banking more than $100,000-per-episode. However he is also reportedly unhappy with the studio’s latest offer and Entertainment Weeklyreports he will also join the suit.
