In an interview with Extra, Vergara explains how different the switch between the two shows will be. The change an unexpected turn in life, but still an exciting one.

“something completely different than I thought I was going to do after Modern Family. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to do something different after 10 years of such a fantastic TV show. I didn’t think I was going to get something like that, but I think it’s better to mix it up for a while.”
