Now, before you start freaking out about what's going to happen to Sofia Vergara's character, Gloria, on Modern Family, I'll clarify — Vergara is not leaving Modern Family. But, TV's highest paid actress will be attached to another series that will make her paycheck even higher. According to Deadline, Vergara is attached to executive produce a new ABC comedy based on her own life, which is currently (possibly tentatively) titled Raising Mom.

It's based off of Vergara's own experiences raising her son, whom she had when she herself was only 21 years old.

Gotta say, this sounds pretty promising! As it's still fairly early in development, there's no word yet on who will star — but expect to hear more about this show in the next few months.
