'Modern Family' cast to spoof salary drama on Emmys

By
The cast of Modern Family will reportedly poke fun at their recent salary dispute at the Emmys.

Actors Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara reached a salary deal in July after seeking a raise to $200,000 (£129,000) per episode from their $65,000 (£41,000) per episode pay.

The cast members rejected an offer of $150,000 (£95,000) an episode and later filed a joint lawsuit in a bid to cancel their seven-year contract for the show.

A finalised deal dictated that each adult cast member be paid approximately $170,000 (£108,000) to $175,000 (£111,000) an episode for the upcoming fourth season, including bonuses.

Sources told Deadline that the highly-publicised negotiations will now be the subject of a new pre-taped Emmys skit.

The video will also apparently mock the Chick-fil-A controversy and feature a surprise star.

This year's Emmy Awards air tonight, September 23 on ABC.
