63 x 30 minute episodes

This Aussie sitcom from Crawford Productions was effectively a spin-off from the successful Wogs Out Of Work stage show which toured Australia in the 1980s (both were conceived by Nick Giannopoulos and Simon Palomares).

The series aired on the Seven Network and revolved around a Greek cafe in Melbourne called The Acropolis which was managed and frequented by a colourful assortment of ethnic Australians and the odd “skip”.

Mary Coustas co-starred as breakout character Effie.
