Same-Sex Marriage to Get Treatment on Popular TV Show Deadline

A hit show on a major broadcast network is set to tackle the issue of same-sex marriage. Deadline.com reports that the ABC comedy "Modern Family" will focus in its fifth-season premiere on the legalization of same-sex marriage in California, which was the subject of a recent ruling by the Supreme Court.

Executive producer Steven Levitan, who spoke at a table read for an audience of Emmy voters at Fox Studios, asked tweeters not to reveal any spoilers while also noting that a plot tweet was likely to happen, the story says.
