ABC in Talks to Develop <i>Modern Family</i> Spin-Off

ABC may be adding another branch to its Modern Family.

The network is currently in negotiations with 20th Century Fox TV to develop a spin-off to the popular comedy series, Deadline reports.

One possible storyline for the spin-off revolves around Gil Thorpe, the character that Rob Riggle guest starred as in two of last season’s episodes, according to Deadline.

Paul Corrigan and Brad Walsh, who executive produces for Modern Family, are currently leading discussions to develop the spin-off, whose script they would plan to write.

Though, Steve Levitan—one half of the duo responsible for creating Modern Family—may work on the potential spin-off, fellow co-creator and executive producer Christopher Lloyd reportedly plans to concentrate only on the flagship show.

Modern Family is currently heading into its fifth season.
