Modern Family Preview Clips and Pics

dunphysToday marks the start of the busiest week of fall premieres for 2009, and if you haven’t already planned out your viewing schedule for the week, you’d better get to it now (make use of our handy-dandy premiere calendar!). TVOvermind will be providing you with tons of preview materials this week to get you ready for all your favorite returning shows, as well as the new shows hitting the networks, so be sure to check in often.

Right now we wanted to give you some preview clips for Modern Family, a new sitcom that premieres this Wednesday on ABC at 9pm (ET). We were fortunate enough to get an early screening for this new show and lets just say you won’t be disappointed. It’s funny, its original, and it accurately reflects some of the challenges of today’s mixed families. Anytime you can accurately reflect something, and still manage to be funny, it’s a good sign. Below is brief synopsis of the new series from ABC, and the preview clips and promotional photos are below that.

“Modern Family,” a new half-hour comedy that takes an honest and often hilarious look at the complexities of modern day families, premieres WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 (9:00-9:30 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (This program will repeat Friday, Sept. 25, from 9:00-9:30 p.m.)

“Pilot” — Today’s families come in all shapes and sizes, and that is very evident in Jay Pritchett’s very full and very blended family. Jay and his new gorgeous and much younger wife, Gloria, are happily married and getting accustomed to their new life together. But when her pre-teen son develops a crush on a 16-year-old girl, it becomes apparent that Jay and Gloria may have some generational and cultural gaps to bridge. Jay’s grown daughter, Claire, has a family of her own — three kids and a husband, Phil, who is practically a giant kid himself. Things get a little tense when their teenage daughter, Haley, brings a boy home and Phil tries to adopt the cool, hip dad approach. Then son Luke misuses of his BB gun, which results in Phil and Claire turning it right back on to him. Jay’s other grown son, Mitchell, is in a committed relationship and has just adopted a baby girl from Vietnam with his life partner, Cameron. They’re going through the joys and anxieties of bringing a baby home for the first time, but Mitchell still has the daunting task of introducing their new addition to the whole family.

“Modern Family” stars Ed O’Neill as Jay Pritchett, Julie Bowen as Claire Dunphy, Ty Burrell as Phil Dunphy, Sof’a Vergara as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Mitchell Pritchett, Eric Stonestreet as Cameron, Sarah Hyland as Haley Dunphy, Nolan Gould as Luke Dunphy, Ariel Winter as Alex Dunphy and Rico Rodriguez as Manny Delgado.
