Iran cut out Mitch and Cam in not-so 'Modern Family'

Everyone loves the hit series Modern Family- except in Iran.
In fact the only way to watch the original version of the smash hit comedy, thanks to the TV censors, is by illegally downloading it. However, while one unauthorised Iranian version of the American sitcom has emerged – it has done so without the hugely popular gay couple Mitch and Cam played by Cameron Tucker, top, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
The couple central to the success of the show internationally, are nowhere to be found in the unauthorised Iranian version broadcast in the country. Haft Sang mimics 'Modern Family' almost scene for scene, as Iranians who have downloaded the original have found.
But the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting channel has left out the gay fathers to Lily Tucker-Pritchett as part of the rigidly enforced state laws.
