'Modern Family' dispute is over
BEVERLY HILLS — "Modern Family," TV's top comedy, and the studio that produces it, have reached a deal with the cast that has abruptly ended a dispute that threatened — or so suggested various reports over the last few days — the season premiere launch in September.
Details were not released but the Los Angeles Times reported last night that the cast — specifically six key cast members — got a raise (though it's uncertain they got what they sought.) The newspaper said each would get $175,000 per episode (which includes bonuses) while each would get $300,000 per episode should "Family" get to an eighth season. The show will begin its fourth in a couple of months.
