My Big Fat Greek Wedding

Fotoula "Toula" Portokalos is her family's black sheep. Her staunchly proud Greek immigrant parents, Gus and Maria, raised their Greek-American kids to follow their cultural traditions of marriage and children. While her older sister followed tradition, Toula is 30 years old, unmarried, and still lives with her parents. Working at Dancing Zorba's, her family's restaurant in Chicago, she longs for an independent life away from the restaurant and her intrusive family, but fears her life will never change. One day at the restaurant, Toula notices a handsome young customer—Ian Miller, a high school teacher. Their romance brings friction and uncertainty to the family as cultures and traditions collide.

My Big Fat Greek Life

The continued adventures of the Portokalos family from the film "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", starting when Nia and her husband return from their honeymoon.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

Toula Portokalos-Miller's (Nia Vardalos) life is in shambles. Her travel agency and the family dry cleaners have closed due to the recession. The only business still open is the family restaurant that her father, Gus (Michael Constantine), still runs. Her husband, Ian (John Corbett), is the principal at their teen-aged daughter Paris's (Elena Kampouris) high school. Paris, who is applying to college, feels smothered by her close-knit clan, who constantly interfere in her life. Desperate for independence and privacy, she applies to schools across the country. Ian and Toula's marriage has become strained due to Toula's obsessive need to be involved in Paris's life and to "fix" whatever goes wrong in her family.
