The hit ABC television show “Modern Family” likely needs no introduction because do to its success in ratings and industry awards. However, just as a basic review: The show uses a mockumentry style of shooting (as seen in “The Office” and “Parks and Rec”). The meta-film crew follows the Pritchett-Dunphy family as they tackle common issues facing plenty of families in our community.
