Modern Family executive producers Paul Corrigan and Brad Walsh have closed a two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television, the studio behind the Emmy-winning comedy series. Under the pact, the duo will continue on Modern Family, where they have been since the inception and will develop new projects for the studio. They recently shepherded the proposed Modern Family spinoff starring Rob Riggle. “Paul and Brad are smart, funny guys and Chris and Steve love them as much as we do,” 20th chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman said. “Five seasons in, Modern Family is about as perfect a comedy series as there is, and this deal with Paul and Brad keeps them on this winning team as well as allows them to develop their own projects down the road.” Corrigan and Walsh were recently nominated for a WGA Award for the episode “Career Day” featuring Riggle and shared in the show’s WGA and PGA nominations this year. Additionally, they shared in Modern Family‘s 2013 Primetime Emmy win for Outstanding Comedy Series, winning four consecutive Emmys in this category. The duo, who previously worked on Fox/20th TV’s animated series King Of The Hill, are repped by UTA and attorney Jared Levine.
