“Modern Family” is missing a key member as its writers begin work on the sixth season of the ABC hit comedy.
Lloyd — pictured above left with “Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson at a screening of the series’ wedding episode last week at the Fox lot — was not present when the writers reconvened to begin work on the upcoming sixth season of the series on Tuesday.
Fellow “Modern Family” co-creator Steven Levitan re-upped with 20th TV with a four year extension of his overall deal in March.
Contract drama for “Modern Family” is nothing new. A contract dispute with the cast of the series resulted in a lawsuit filed by the actors, which was dropped when the dispute was resolved in 2012.
