Modern Family Cast Sues Over Contracts

( 4UMF NEWS ) Modern Family Cast Sues Over Contracts:

Five stars of Modern Family have banded together and are suing to void their contracts to work on the hit comedy, arguing that the contracts are illegal under California law.

Sofia Vergara and four of her ‘Modern Family’ castmates say their contracts with ABC violate a California law prohibiting personal service contracts from extending for more than seven years.

The suit, filed Tuesday by series stars Sofia Vergara, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell, argues that their contracts with 20th Century Fox Television violate a California law prohibiting personal service contracts from extending for more than seven years.

The lawsuit asks a judge to rule the contracts are illegal and should be voided because they prohibit the actors from other work. The lawsuit states the contracts bind the actors to work on the series from February 2009 and June 30, 2016.

“Modern Family has been a breakout critical and financial success,” the lawsuit states. “That success, however, has been built upon a collection of illegal contracts.”

A spokeswoman for 20th Century Fox said the studio had no immediate comment on the case.

The lawsuit also states contracts cap the raises the actors receive for each additional season of the show — Vergara’s pay raise per season is capped at five percent, while the rest of her co-stars named in the suit are allowed to receive a maximum pay increase of four percent per year. Ferguson, Stonestreet, Bowen and Burrell are also required to perform numerous unpaid publicity obligations.
The show recently concluded its third season.
