'Modern Family' fans can now breathe a tremendous sigh of relief, as the tense negotiations have ended and the entire cast has officially been signed for season 4. Things got a little hairy there, but in the end all the "i's" have been dotted and season 4 won't miss a beat from production to premiere. But the big question is, if $150,000 and episode wasn't enough for the six adult cast members, what did they end up getting?
All week long we've been hearing about the stars of ABC's 'Modern Family,' and the circus that erupted after the principle cast declined to show up for the show's first season 4 table ready over unsettled contract negotiations. Later it seemed like the cast was willing to show up without officially closing any deals, but who actually arrived at the big day?
Oh thank goodness, the millionaire TV stars are getting back to work and swimming in Emmy nominations. Though there are still plenty of details to be hashed out in the ongoing 'Modern Family' contract negotiations, at least both sides have agreed to a temporary truce that will see a resumption in production for the show's fourth season. But, will it last?
Considering 'Modern Family' earned a whopping 14 Emmys nominations last week, you'd better believe that the stars of the show are going to want their overlords to pay through the nose for their talent. We'd previously heard a bit about the ongoing contract negotiations, but now a sudden twist has left the chairs empty for the show's first season 4 table read! What happened, and how long until it's resolved?
If there's one thing 'Justified' fans know, its that the modern FX gunslinger series appreciates its villains. From Robert Quarles, to Mags Bennett, to Boyd Crowder and back again, we're always in for a memorable performance. Should it surprise you, then, that one 'Modern Family' star is looking to shed his nice-guy persona for something a little darker?
Everyone knows that working in steady TV, particularly network TV can be a lucrative gig. And as seasons go on, shows grow in popularity, and the actors have appropriate leverage with which to make better deals for themselves. So while we scrimp for change to do the laundry, know that the 'Modern Family' stars just aren't content with tens of thousands of dollars per episode.
