About the Show
Told from the perspective of an unseen documentary filmmaker, the series offers an honest, often-hilarious perspective of family life. Parents Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire (Julie Bowen) yearn for an honest, open relationship with their three kids. But a daughter who is trying to grow up too fast, another who is too smart for her own good and a rambunctious young son make it challenging. Claire's dad Jay (Ed O'Neill) and his Latina wife Gloria (Sofia Vergara) are raising two sons together, but people sometimes believe Jay to be Gloria's father. Jay's gay son Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and his partner Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) have adopted a little Asian girl, completing one big - straight, gay, multicultural, traditional - happy family. Also starring Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons.
