Modern Family” scribes Paul Corrigan and Brad Walsh have signed a two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox Television.

Duo, which previously held an overall with the studio, will continue to serve as exec producers on 20th TV-produced comedy as a part of the pact.

“Paul and Brad have been on ‘Modern Family’ since the beginning, and our relationship with them dates all the way back to ‘King of the Hill,’” said 20th TV chairman and CEO Dana Walden. “They’re smart, funny guys and Chris and Steve love them as much as we do. Five seasons in, ‘Modern Family’ is about as perfect a comedy series as there is, and this deal with Paul and Brad keeps them on this winning team as well as allows them to develop their own projects down the road.”

Prior to their tenure on ABC’s “Modern Family,” Walsh and Corrigan worked on Fox’s “King of the Hill” for four seasons. They are repped by UTA and attorney Jared Levine.
