Iranian Ripoff of TV's Modern Family Isn't So Modern

YouTube Link

Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting Company's comedy television show Haft Sang is almost a scene-by-scene ripoff of ABC's Modern Family. Yet there is one glaring omission: the gay characters. Haft Sang, an unauthorized remake, has changed sexual preferences, genders and other traits of characters that don't fit in with their ultraconservative religious rules concerning sexuality, dating and interaction between males and females. 

Iranian fans of Modern Family (which they illegally download, because such American television shows are outlawed) compiled a video comparison illustrating how directly the Iranian show imitated Modern Family. Via Dangerous Minds
