'Modern Family' Star Working on New Comedy for ABC Deadline

One of the stars of "Modern Family" is working on a comedy project for ABC. Deadline.com reports that the project, "Raising Mom," is inspired by the parenting experiences of actress Sofia Vergara.

Gail Mancuso, who won an Emmy for directing "Modern Family," is slated to direct the project, which is from Vergara and Luis Balaguer’s Latin World Entertainment, Electus and ABC Studios.

"Raising Mom," written by Christine Zander of "Raising Hope," is about a young single mother and her 21-year-old son, who "discover that they have done a pretty good job of raising each other, only now they decide it might be time to gain some independence," the story says.
