Modern Family spin off? An attempt seems likely

Modern Family is entering it’s freaking 11th season!  The confessional style comedy has been struggling with over the top plot lately and most of the actors are lining up future gigs as the final season enters production.  Still, network honchos aren’t ready to stop beating that dead horse. It’s time for a spin off.

Word is Hayley Dunphy, played by Sarah Hyland, and her newborn baby with her on-again-off-again boyfriend Dylan, played by Reid Ewing, is just enough of a stand alone story line to try and get some legs of its own.

ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke told that anytime she brings up the word “spin off” to the shows creator, she quickly gets shooshed down.  Producers are still focused on season 11 and not looking to the future yet. But if the Execs want it, it’ll happen.
