Broadway star Jesse Tyler Ferguson - who originated the role of Leaf Coneybear in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee - stars in ABC's new comedy "Modern Family." 

"Modern Family" became the first ABC pilot to get a series order for this season.

The ensemble cast also includes Ed O'Neill and recent CHICAGO 'Mama Morton', Sofia Vergara.

Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd's docu-style single-camera comedy "Family," from 20th TV, "revolves around three families: one comprised of a working dad, stay-at-home mom and two kids; another that includes a 60-year-old man who becomes a stepfather after marrying a Latina who is 30 years his junior; and the third, a gay couple who have just adopted a Vietnamese baby".

Ferguson plays one of the gay dads. Ferguson's other theatre credits include On the Town, Little Fish and the Actors' Fund concert of On the Twentieth Century. He was also featured on the sitcom "The Class" and has appeared on "Ugly Betty". Sarah Hyland, Nolan Gould and Ariel Winter also star in the single-camera project, which Jason Winer helmed from a script by Steve Levitan and Christopher Lloyd.
