2. Modern Family (2009-)
‘Modern Family’ is an American mockumentary family sitcom that airs on the ABC. The basic story offers a look at the everyday lives of various modern family units who are related to each other. The humor arises as we see them face problems that most of us are familiar with. The focus is on three types of families, a nuclear family, a same-sex family, and a stepfamily. The families are interrelated through Jay Pritchett and his children Claire and Mitchell. Jay is the patriarch, who is married to the much younger woman, Gloria Delgado Pritchett, who is rather passionate as well. They have a young son together and Gloria has another son from her previous marriage. Claire, Jay’s daughter, reenters the business world from being a homemaker. She becomes the chief executive of Pritchett’s Closets and Blinds, her father’s business. She marries Phil Dunphy, who is a cool dad. His self professed coolness comes in handy since they have three children. The eldest daughter is a ditzy teenager, the middle child is nerdy and smart and the youngest is a little offbeat. As for Jay’s son, Mitchell, he is married to his husband, Cameron and the couple has an adopted daughter.
All of the people live in the suburbs of Los Angeles and ‘Modern Family’ expertly walks us through the many comical situations that the family faces in their everyday life. The best bit is that the show does not ask us to make any judgments, providing all aspects of these modern families. Sofia Vergara plays the role of Gloria and she does a wonderful job portraying a woman who is trying to fit into the idea of an American family but has her share of difficulties. Undoubtedly, Vergara will reprise the role in the upcoming season and will deliver a memorable performance.
1. Koati (TBA)
Upcoming animation comedy ‘Koati’ will be voiced and executive-produced by ‘Modern Family’ star Sofia Vergara. Rodrigo Pérez Castro, story artist on ‘Ferdinand’, ‘Ice Age: Collision Course‘ and ‘Rio 2’, will direct the feature, which is created and produced by Anabella Sosa Dovarganes from Upstairs & Los Hijos de Jack Productions. Vergara will executive produce alongside Luis Balaguer, Diego Urbano, Chris Zimmer, Jose Nacif, Melissa Escobar, Upstairs Productions, Latin WE and Timeless Films.
Vergara, who has previously voiced animations ‘The Smurfs’ and ‘Happy Feet Two’, told a leading website, “Koati is an invitation to celebrate — for the first time in an animated film, the magical realism of the Latin American jungles, of the Amazonian rainforest, and the fun, exotic creatures that call it ‘home’. It’s a coming of age comedy starring a cool and real family of animals the world needs to meet.”
The feature will follow three unlikely heroes: a free-spirited coati (a raccoon-like animal found mainly in Central and South America), a fearless monarch butterfly, and a hyperactive glass frog as they embark on an adventure to stop a wicked coral snake (Vergara) from destroying their homeland and friends. The film, which has been in development since 2015, has been selected as one of five to take part in the Annecy Goes to Cannes program which takes place at the Riviera festival.
