ABC‘s Emmy-winning comedy will film its next vacation episode in Australia. Written by Danny Zuker and Elaine Ko and directed by Modern Family co-creator Steven Levitan, the episode will feature the show’s entire cast sans Jay and Gloria’s baby boy. The show will film in Sydney, in the Blue Mountains and hopefully at the Great Barrier Reef with the cooperation of Australian airline Qantas. Here is what Levitan had to say about next month’s stint:
We are so excited about our trip down under and we promise not to do any ‘down under’ jokes. We look forward to a fantastic shoot in many exotic locations. We loved the family vacation episodes we shot in Hawaii and Wyoming – this one is certainly our most ambitious yet. We promise to feature a kangaroo, a koala and a boomerang. I’m sure there will be lots more, but so far that’s all we know about Australia – our American school system is a disaster. So we thank Qantas for this amazing opportunity to broaden our horizons. Plus it’ll be nice to go to a place where everyone looks like Hugh Jackman and Miranda Kerr. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!
