ABC Eyes Modern Family Spin-Off Series

Modern Family SpinoffABC may soon add a branch to its Family tree.

The network is in very early talks with 20th Century Fox TV to spin-off its hit comedy Modern Family, our sister site Deadline reports.

Details surrounding the prospective series are scarce, but one of several offshoot ideas being thrown around centers on memorable Family guest star Rob Riggle and his charmingly grating real estate agent character, Gil Thorpe.

Modern Family executive producers Paul Corrigan and Brad Walsh would pen and helm the project. The flagship’s co-creator Steve Levitan would also have some involvement in the prospective series.

Is a Modern Family spin-off a good idea? If not Gil Thorpe, which character(s) would you like to see off on their own?
