Well, looks like Nia's Big Fat Greek Life is 'history' -- too bad.

Years ago, it was fairly common for a well received Film to move over to TV. MASH is the most notable. It was considered by many to be quite lame in its initial effort, but with time ... yes, you know the rest of THAT story.

Big Fat Greek Life could have achieved a status on par with Wedding. But it needed time to find its rhythm. And, reading between the lines of how TV operates, can imagine that Nia was handcuffed by the 'experts' in details of the show (i.e. - laugh track). She should have been left alone to develop the show in same way she was left alone to develop the Film (where's Tom Hanks when you need him ? ;-)

If some 'expert' had some patience, we may have been treated to a weekly, wonderful, eclectic view of America that is needed in our Land of McDonalds, Malls, Bimbo Blondes, and ignorant TV experts ... and TO those "experts" - what's the basic definition of Tragedy and Comedy ? (k, uncle ? ... alrighty, if YOU are a TV 'executive/expert' don't peek -- Comedy is something 'good' happening to someone who doesn't 'deserve' it ... Tragedy is something 'bad' happening to someone who doesn't 'deserve' it)

Thank You Nia ... you WILL be missed

ps - but it'll be ok in the long run ... just imagine, we'll only need to wait another 2500 years for the NEXT installment from the folks who invented Theater ... patience, patience
