My New Greek Life – TV Series


Last autumn we were contacted by RDF Television who were looking for people to take part in a new TV programme being made for Channel 5.

The team described it as a new, fun and inspiring series centred around people who had decided to give everything up and move to Greece, or who had already recently made the move. The team making the programme were looking for people all over Greece, including Zakynthos, to be involved, as yet we don’t know which locations were finally chosen or will be featured.

My New Greek Life has now been made and will show all the challenges that those moving to another country can face, not only finding new homes and jobs, but also tackling the local language and settling into a new community and making friends.

The series will give viewers a glimpse of what it’s like to move to Greece along with all the ups and downs, trials and tribulations that go with it. According to the press release from the production company, “viewers will not only  see spectacular scenery in an incredibly beautiful location, but the programme will also, hopefully, inspire audiences to think: ‘If they can do it, maybe so can I…’”

The first episode of A New Greek Life will air on 11 February, 10pm, Channel 5.

About Chrissie Parker

Chrissie Parker joined the Zakynthos Informer Team in 2014. Chrissie’s first experience of the island was a combined birthday and wedding celebration, in true Zakynthian style. Since then she has been able to combine her love of the island, including its incredible history, tradition and culture, with her love of writing.

  1. No doubt storylines have been added which will be pure fiction (as in the French series some years ago). The same as in the Spanish series on TV at the moment, there seems to be a concerted effort to get us to leave this grossly overcrowded country!!!

    • The programme has been researched by the TV company and people involved chose to be part of it due to their love of Greece. It’s good publicity for the country and many people have chosen Greece as a forever home for decades now, it’s nothing new.

      • Hi

          If you look at the image on the post it has an email address for the Production Company, you could try them. We have no contact details for anyone else connected to the programme.

  2. I love Greece and have been going there for years. I thought the show was good but regarding the sailing family for example, there is quite a difference between “My New Greek Life” and their YouTube channel “Sailing Holly Blue” it will be interesting to see what happens in the next episode.
