MY BIG FAT GREEK LIFE is a new comedy series about a woman's over-the-top Greek family. The cast includes Nia Vardalos ("My Big Fat Greek Wedding"), Lainie Kazan ("St. Elsewhere"), Steven Eckholdt ("L.A. Law"), Louis Mandylor ("Martial Law"), Gia Carides ("Strictly Ballroom"), Andrea Martin ("SCTV Network 90") and Michael Constantine ("Room 222"). Everyone but Eckholdt starred in the hit movie, "My Big Fat Greek Wedding."
Nia Portokalos is a newly-married modern woman caught in an old-fashioned world. From an early age, Nia was mortified by her family's patriotic, exaggerated ways. But when she falls in love and marries a non-Greek teacher, Thomas Miller, her family eventually learns to accept him and Nia learns to accept her family's meddlesome ways.
Nia and Thomas return from their honeymoon to begin their new life together and find that it will include her overzealous extended family. The family includes Nia's father Gus, an opinionated man who owns a Greek restaurant called Dancing Zorba's; her mother Maria, the consummate worrier; her overly-protective brother Nick, a typically macho Greek man who works alongside his family as a cook at their restaurant; her Aunt Voula, a vivacious woman always full of advice, and her big-haired, big-mouthed cousin Nikki.
Brad Grey ("The Sopranos"), Marsh McCall ("Just Shoot Me") and Rita Wilson ("From the Earth to the Moon") are the executive producers for Brad Grey Television, The Playtone Company and Marsh McCall Productions, in association with Sony Pictures Television.
