Fox TV Stations have inked a deal with corporate sibling Twentieth Television for the broadcast syndication rights to the Emmy-Award winning comedy Modern Family. The ABC comedy, produced by 20th TV, has been sold to the Fox TV stations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Washington, D.C., Houston, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Orlando and Baltimore for a fall 2013 premiere. The deal comes on the heels of Fox TV stations shelling $500,000+ per-episode for The Big Bang Theory in May and renewing syndicated strip Dr. Oz in New York and Chicago, while losing it to KABC-TV in Los Angeles. It also follows the cable syndication sale of Modern Family this summer to USA for $1.4 per episode.
