Modern Family Spinoff In Works; Rob Riggle Character Gil Thorpe Considered


By Daniel Gates


ABC is looking to develop a “Modern Family” spinoff.

The network’s interest in a potential new series has been confirmed, although a specific premise has not been finalized.

According to Deadline, among the primary ideas being explored is a show revolving around Gil Thorpe, the abrasive real estate agent character portrayed by Rob Riggle (see video below).

The Emmy-winning sitcom’s co-creator Steve Levitan is expected to be involved in the process.

Gossip Cop will have updates about the spinoff development.
