‘Modern Family’ Cast Dispute Update: Table Read Scheduled for Tomorrow
Yesterday, the cast of Modern Family — minus Ed O’Neil- did not show up for a scheduled table read and filed a lawsuit against Twentieth Century Fox as part of an ongoing contract dispute. Like the stars of Big Bang Theory and Friendsbefore them, they want a substantial raise now that the show has scored a lucrative syndication deal. Now Deadline reports that the table read has been rescheduled for Thursday and the cast is expected to attend as a gesture of good will. Reportedly, there has been no progress in the contract negotiations, but everyone involved seems to think that the show will return as scheduled in the fall.
