Discovery Travel & Living is all set to serve behind-the-scenes drama inherent in a family-run restaurant business, with ‘The Family Restaurant’. The show was premiered on July 7 and is telecast every Saturday at 8 pm with a repeat telecast on Sundays at 3 pm.
Aditya Tripathi, Vice President-Lifestyle, Discovery Networks India, said, “Viewers in India will easily relate to this programme because the emotions that run through this Greek family mirror what goes on in any Indian home. There are arguments and conflicts, but eventually the strong bonds of togetherness prevail, and the family patriarch generally has the last word.”
‘The Family Restaurant’ is a saga of a fiery Edmonton restaurateur and patriarch Yianni Psalios, his colourful family that includes his wife, son, daughter and son-in-law, and their bustling Greek eateries, which they all run together.
With a forthright wife, an insecure son, a rebellious daughter and a would-be son-in-law, Psalios has to contend with varying mood swings, opinions and pride within his family and co-workers. Vieweres can expect a healthy portion of passion, arm-twisting, table dancing and plate throwing, pride and bravado, and large servings of ego as cameras follow the Greek family which works, cooks, eats and fights, yet stays together.
