‘Modern Family’: Premiere to address historic Supreme Court gay marriage ruling

On Saturday, August 17th, 2013

19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Press RoomABC’s Emmy-winning sitcom “Modern Family” will tackle the historic Supreme Court ruling that led to the legalization of same-sex marriage in California in its first episode of the show’s fifth season. As reported by Deadline on August 14, writer Jeffrey Richman admitted at an onstage table read that he started writing a storyline prior to the ruling.

“We would have been extremely unlucky writers had the decision gone the other way.”

He joked that he was more happy to be a writer on that historic day of June 26 than as a gay man because it meant he could write the episode that is set to premiere on September 25.

Creator Steve Levitan and the cast remained tight lipped on any other plots the show has in store for viewers. Levitan actually pleaded with tweeters not to spoil any of the premiere’s surprises including whether or not there will be a same-sex wedding between the show’s gay couple Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cam (Eric Stonestreet).

The popularity of “Modern Family” as well as the exposure of gay characters like Mitch and Cam gives Richman an opportunity to migrate a current real life issue like gay marriage into a show that has a broad enough audience to show the effect and emotions of the ruling through two of the show’s more popular characters.

About - Tarringo T. Vaughan always believed he had a love affair with literature. One of the first pictures he saw of himself was of him at maybe the age of three or four year’s old sitting with a book in his hand. But for Tarringo, growing up in the depths of the inner city both in Boston, MA and Springfield, MA made him believe that expression through the literary voice was un-cool and unattainable. As a very quiet and shy child he learned it became very valuable in his self expression. Born in 1976, Tarringo was the first child, grandchild and nephew in a family that had grown accustomed to struggle. His mother was a teenager who quickly lost the support of my father who today he knows very little of. These aspects of his life triggered the inspiration of his pen.
