Wyo. city in running for 'Modern Family' premiere
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - June 28, 2011 (WPVI) -- Jackson Hole, Wyo., is reportedly in the running to be the setting for the premiere of "Modern Family."
The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports Wednesday that producers of ABC's "mockumentary" sitcom named the resort town as their top pick but that network approval is still pending. The proposal would have the show's characters on a family vacation at the Lost Creek Ranch, a lodge and spa.
ABC officials declined to comment.
The newspaper reports that Jackson emerged at the front-runner after the Snow King Resort offered to set aside rooms for the production crew and actors, and the lodging tax board agreed to help pay for the rooms.
The show has also considered sites in Tucson, Ariz.; Bozeman, Mont.; and Steamboat Springs, Colo.
