An upcoming episode of the popular ABC show Modern Family will take place entirely on a MacBook as the characters use FaceTime and other services to communicate, as noted by Recode:

The episode revolves around Claire Dunphy, a working mother of three played by Julie Bowen, who is stuck in an airport and desperate to reach her daughter, Haley, to reconcile after a fight. The story plays out on her Macbook, as she employs all the forms of modern communication at her disposal, from email to FaceTime to Facebook, in an attempt to locate her eldest child, played by Sarah Hyland.

Not only will the upcoming episode take place on a MacBook screen, the report adds that it “was shot entirely with Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2 tablets.”

Recode has more with quotes from the show’s co-creator Steven Levitan on the inspiration behind the episode.
