NEW YORK (AP) - Typically one sign a TV series is doing well is if there's a budget to travel and film on location. By that definition, "Modern Family" is doing extremely well - the cast is heading across the globe.
Qantas Airlines says it is partnering with the show's production company, 20th Century Fox Television, to fly the cast to Australia next month for a two-week shoot of the ABC comedy.
"Modern Family," now in its fifth season, has aired previous vacation episodes that were filmed in Hawaii and Wyoming.
In a statement, show creator Steve Levitan says: "We promise to feature a kangaroo, a koala and a boomerang."
"Modern Family" airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
