About the Author

MARC FREEMAN is a freelance writer for publications including Vanity Fair, The Hollywood Reporter, and Slate. He has written a series of critically acclaimed oral histories on many groundbreaking television shows, including M*A*S*H, Frasier, Cheers, and The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.


I gave the best years of my life to Modern Family. Let's hope Freeman doesn't f&%k this up. Crap, I swore again. Sorry, Rico....Marc really tells the story of Modern Family in an interesting and fun way, filled with fascinating details but never gossipy. Very candid and incredibly readable. --Julie Bowen, actor, Claire Dunphy
Holy shit! This is a remarkable window into TV history. It's as if I was there. And then I remember, I was there! --Bill Wrubel, writer and executive producer

"I have so many wonderful memories from working on Modern Family, but 11 years is a long time and I am certainly never going to remember every wonderful moment. I am so grateful to Marc for taking the time to put together this cohesive, entertaining and moving account of what has been the best job of my career thus far." --Jesse Tyler Ferguson, actor, Mitchell Pritchett

How can I not like this? Great job. I love the cutting in and out of the different people. The different perspectives. Couldn't be better. --Ed O'Neill, actor, Jay Pritchett

I truly enjoyed reliving the show through Marc's insightful questions and his investigation of what made our show special. --Ty Burrell, actor, Phil Dunphy

Taking a walk down memory lane with Marc has been both fun and melancholy. It's hard to believe the job I dreamed of getting for 12 years and had the pleasure of doing for 11 is now over. But hey! Chin up!! This book will help us all feel happy again as we relive the show from the beginning. --Eric Stonestreet, actor, Cameron Tucker
