Discussion About Modern Family

  1. Abi

    I return to this script a lot to study the art of creating a big story with very little space. This pilot is so cleanly structured, it’s easy to forget that it has to set up a premise, twelve important characters, nuclear family dynamics, extended family dynamics, and tell a story that is both funny and emotionally resonant. It’s incredible how this script accomplishes all of that without showing any seams.

      Well said, Abi.
