Nia Vardalos Is Coming To TV!

| Filed under: TV News


Grab your big, fat Greek family and make your way to the tube! Next fall, prepare to see Nia Vardalos like you have never seen her before: on the small screen!

The actress, writer and producer is taking all of those talents to TV, as ABC Studios is picking up a series that will set Nia up as a big star on the small screen. While the project remains untitled, the comedy Nia will star, write and executive produce will be a comedy about a "morning show host who reaches her tipping point."

We're thinking …. Kelly Ripa on a bender! LOL!

If this a true "Nia" project, no doubt there is going to be an outstanding supporting cast that is going to outshine Nia, while still compliment her at the same time.

    "like you've never seen her before: on the small screen" Check your facts, buddy. She starred in the short lived "My Big Fat Greek Life" on the small screen.

    Re: djdnyc2004 – The "big screen" is a movie theater. My Big Fat Greek Wedding came to theaters. The "small screen" is television. Just because a movie shows on tv doesn't mean its considered small screen. Small screen is a term regulated to tv shows. You check your facts too.

    She is horrible. But I am pretty sure she has been on tv before. . Kelly Ripa on a bender! What a great joke. You are one amazing writer.

    Christopolis. I did check my facts. My Big Fat Greek WEDDING was in the theaters. My Big Fact Greek LIFE was her TV season based on the movie with the same cast that ran for one season on TV. I have it on dvd. Check that!

    Soooo, it can't be on CBS right? Les Moonves said something about life being too short to work with Nia Vardalos. I'm sure it will be great, in a "Planet 9" kinda way.

    Re: Cristopolis – ROFL, you are wrong and djnyc2004 is right. There was a brief and very awful t.v. show called My Big Fat Greek Life that Nia starred in. No relation to the movie which was My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Maybe YOU should check the facts before trying to correct anyone else.

    Re: neilnriley – Ummm…how exactly is "My Big Fat Greek Life" which WAS BASED on the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding - NO RELATION ?? what a strange argument surrounding a hugely over-rated pseudo-star. Why am I even commenting on this…?
