Sofia Vergara has been tapped to co-star in the new ABC comedy pilot, An American Family. The documentary-style comedy from 20th TV revolves around three very different families. One is traditional, another consists of a young Latina mom (Vergara) recently married to a man 30 years her senior and the third family is a gay couple who have just adopted a Vietnamese baby. Jason Winer is set to direct the show, originally created by Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd.

Vergara's casting is related to a previous talent deal the actress struck with ABC. The Colombian-born actress can currently be seen on the silver screen, starring in Tyler Perry's newest film Madea Goes to Jail.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
