Modern Family may be getting its very own spin-off. Deadline reports that ABC and studio 20th Century Fox have discussed several options for a spin-off to the multi-Emmy-winning series, including one starring Rob Riggle as his Modern Family character Gil Thorpe. Modern Family executive producers Paul Corrigan and Brad Walsh would be likely to write and run the new series.
Riggle appeared in two episodes last season, playing an abrasive real estate rival to Ty Burrell’s Phil. It’s been a big week for Riggle; it was announced last week that he’s playing two major roles in the upcoming Dumb and Dumber sequel.
