Currently in its 10th season, ABC announced today that it has picked up the Emmy(R) Award-winning series “Modern Family” for an 11th and final season. This wonderfully large and blended family will continue to delight audiences for the 2019-2020 fall schedule with its honest and often hilarious look into the warm and sometimes twisted embrace of the modern family. Produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television in association with Steven Levitan Productions and Picador Productions, the series airs Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. EST on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

“Chris and Steve have created one of the most seminal and iconic comedies in television history,” said Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment. “In its final season, there will be more milestone events that anyone who has been a fan of the series won’t want to miss.”

“For 10 years, our characters have bravely faced turning points in life and moved through them to great personal enrichment; we have chosen a different path by doing one more season of ‘Modern Family,'” said co-creator and executive producer Christopher Lloyd.

“Even after 10 years together, we realized there are still some things our writers don’t yet know about each other’s sex lives,” said co-creator and executive producer Steve Levitan.

ABC’s “Modern Family” ranks No. 1 in Wednesday’s 9:00 p.m. half-hour among Adults 18-49 (2.1/9) and places among TV’s Top 5 comedies this season (No. 4). A five-time Emmy winner for Outstanding Comedy Series, “Modern Family” remains one of the most heavily awarded comedy series on television, including a Golden Globe(R) win, four SAG Award wins for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, a Peabody Award, two GLAAD Media Awards, two NAACP Image Awards, six WGA awards, four PGA awards, a Television Critics award along with dozens of individual wins by the show’s award-winning cast.

The series stars Ed O’Neill as Jay Pritchett, Julie Bowen as Claire Dunphy, Ty Burrell as Phil Dunphy, Sofia Vergara as Gloria Pritchett, Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Mitchell Pritchett, Eric Stonestreet as Cameron Tucker, Sarah Hyland as Haley Dunphy, Nolan Gould as Luke Dunphy, Ariel Winter as Alex Dunphy, Rico Rodriguez as Manny Delgado, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons as Lily Tucker-Pritchett and Jeremy Maguire as Joe Pritchett.

Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd are co-creators/executive producers. Jeff Morton, Danny Zuker, Paul Corrigan, Brad Walsh, Abraham Higginbotham, Jeffrey Richman, Elaine Ko, Bill Wrubel, Vali Chandrasekaran, Stephen Lloyd, Jack Burditt and Jon Pollak also serve as executive producers.

True Lies TV series in the works from McG

The classic Arnie movie is getting a TV adaptation made

McG (“Terminator Salvation”) is taking on more James Cameron, confirming he is working on a TV series adapted from the 1994 action-comedy “True Lies”. The series will be developed for the Disney+ streaming service.

McG spoke to Collider, stating “Well, right now my new thing for television is I’m doing ‘True Lies’ at Disney… which is exciting. I’m writing that one, which is very exciting, because I’m so passionate about that story where you think you know your partner but you don’t.”

Of course what we all want to know is … will there be Arnie? “There’s talk of that. It’s largely rebooted but there may be a spot there, we’ll see.”

In the original “True Lies”, Schwarzenegger plays a secret agent in the film who struggles to find the right balance between his work and family life, where he has to lie to his wife (Jamie Lee Curtis) about his professional activities.

The original 1994 film, also starring Tom Arnold and Jamie Lee Curtis, was expected to be the first in a franchise – but director Cameron went cold on the idea after the events of 9/11, noting that terrorism wasn’t something to make light of anymore.

In the original, Harry Tasker (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a sales Representative for a computer company, with a wife, Helen, and a daughter, Dana, with a house in the suburbs in Washington D.C. Or so everybody thinks. Harry is actually an agent of a private organization that hunts down any threats to the United States. While he is investigating a possible threat on the U.S., his wife Helen becomes lonely and starts to hang around another man, a used car salesman named Simon (Bill Paxton), so Harry secretly uses his organization’s equipment to monitor on his wife and her new friend. Harry must also worry about the threat on the U.S. Meanwhile, a middle eastern terrorist named Salim Abu Aziz, has formed his own terrorist network he calls “Crimson Jihad” and they are threatening to Nuke the U.S. if they do not get what they want. So, Harry must stop the terrorists and, hopefully, save his own personal life.

McG, who has carved out somewhat of a career for himself in recent years directing and/or producing various small-screen projects for Netflix,  helmed “Terminator Salvation” – a sequel to Cameron’s grandiose ’80s classic “The Terminator”.
