Modern Family star Ty Burrell and his brother Duncan have sold a sitcom inspired by their lives to ABC. According to Deadline, the show is about two families who run the only store in a small town in Oregon. (The Burrells indeed ran a store in Applegate, Oregon, for many years.) Man, ABC really loves a family-set sitcom — of its eight current comedies, six are family shows.
