New deal will elevate "Modern Family's" Andrew Higginbotham to executive producer
Abraham Higginbotham, co-executive producer of "Modern Family," has struck a two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television, TheWrap has confirmed.
Under the pact, Higginbotham will be elevated to executive producer and will develop projects for 20th Century Fox TV, which produces the ABC hit.
Earlier this week, "Modern Family's" Jeff Richman received a similar deal with 20th Century Fox Television.
Higginbotham has been with "Modern Family" since 2010. His resume includes a stint as a co-executive producer on the Kelsey Grammer/Patricia Heaton comedy "Back to You" — which, like "Modern Family," was created by Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd.
