Steven Levitan said it was dropped. So who knows what they're talking to now

On whether it's a documentary or not: Levitan said that in the original pitch, it was explicitly a documentary, made by a Dutch filmmaker named Geert Floorjte who had lived with Jay's family as a teenage exchange student and developed a crush on Claire (while Mitchell had a crush on him). In the end, he and Christopher Lloyd decided it was an unnecessary component of the show - especially since they weren't sure how much they liked the idea of their characters letting themselves be filmed.

Interesting. Had no idea they dropped it, but it's good of them to realize it wasn't really working for them. That said, I hope this show does the same. It doesn't need them, and all it does is create kludge.
