Astoria to be "extra character" in Greek TV Show

Looks like more filming will be happening in Astoria. From the article:

The subway rumbles over 31st Street, passing by a small, unobtrusive office in Astoria tucked next to a convenience store. A tiny sign on the door advertises the company, “Ikseni Productions,” in orange and black letters.

Inside, 20-something filmmakers are working feverishly, writing scripts, securing permits to shoot around Queens, casting extras and handling piles of accounting paperwork.

It’s the pre-production phase of “On 31st Street,” the first show for a Greek television network to be filmed entirely in the United States. The show’s Greek-American creators plan to shoot and produce it primarily in Astoria, Queens.

“We would like to show them what New York is like and how Greeks live here,” said Andreas Georgio, the show’s co-creator, lead actor and producer.

I think Greek is hilarious. Yes, they do have the stereotypical sorority and fraternity but it's not mocking but just cute humor.Catch all eps Download Greek here..

Greek TV Show is about a super social sister and her anti-social brother who are both dealing with living the Greek life in college. The series focuses on a group of college students in and out of the fraternity and sorority system at a campus. The plot of the show is really good and I like this show very much.
