MY BIG FAT GREEK SITCOM

The honeymoon is far from over for My Big Fat Greek Wedding. The low-budget sleeper is headed to the small screen in the form of a CBS comedy series. The Eye network has ordered seven episodes of the half-hour sitcom, which would find Wedding leading lady Nia Vardalos reprising her film role. (The triple threat also co-wrote the pilot and will serve as an exec producer.) According to Variety, the series — which could bow as early as midseason — will pick up as Vardalos' alter ego starts dating a non-Greek man behind her parents' back. Sadly, John Corbett will not be back as her beau; the actor is committed to FX's upcoming series Lucky.
