Critically lauded for revitalizing the television sitcom, "Modern Family" is also quickly cementing itself as a culturally defining series. The recipient of a record five consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series, tying the Emmy record previous set by "Frasier," and a Golden Globe Award for Best Comedy Television Series, "Modern Family" returns to the ABC Television Network for its sixth season.
The Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan is a wonderfully large and blended family with Jay Pritchett sitting at the head. By his side is his vivacious, younger second wife Gloria, and together they are navigating life with a new baby, Joe, and Gloria's teenage son Manny, who has taken to high school with the same charm and gusto he's had since he was little. Meanwhile, Jay's grown daughter, Claire, and her husband, Phil, are trying to keep up as their kids grow up right before their eyes with the youngest, Luke, now a sophomore in high school; middle daughter, Alex, is graduating this year and looking at colleges, and eldest, Haley, is living at home and pursuing a career. Then there's Claire's brother and Jay's grown son, Mitchell, who just married his longtime love Cameron. Both are enjoying life as newlyweds and raising their sassy adopted six-year-old daughter Lily. These three families are unique unto themselves, and together they give us an honest and often hilarious look into the sometimes warm, sometimes twisted, embrace of the modern family.
