At the Podium

In a fun and interactive program, Levitan takes audiences behind the scenes of Modern Family, giving a rare glimpse of all that goes into making the series such a beloved hit. Levitan shares anecdotes and never-before-seen clips and describes how his own life (and the lives of his fellow writers) inspired much of what we see and love on the screen.

Levitan also discusses the benefits of being willing to “fail on your own terms.” He talks about the Hollywood tendency to flock to wherever the lightning strikes and encourages audiences to spark their own lightning, rather than chase the storm.
