NEW GREEK SERIES

"My Greek Odyssey" airing on channel 7

 

April 2019

Be prepared to be wowed by the beauty, uniqueness and sheer splendor of Greece when new TV series, My Greek Odyssey, commenced on Sunday, March 24, screening on the Seven Network at 1:30pm in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Hobart and in regional areas, plus 5pm in Darwin. In SA it will be screening on 7 HD.

Hosted by charismatic and larger-than-life character, Peter Maneas, the 13-part travel series will take viewers to some of the most spectacular and unique islands in Greece. But don’t be mistaken in thinking My Greek Odyssey is just another travel show – this journey is far from ordinary!

Peter has sailed his super yacht Mia Zoi (trans-lated from Greek meaning One Life) amongst the Saronic and Ionian Islands, visiting fascinating destinations including Hydra, Spetses, Corfu, Zakynthos and Kythira. Throughout the series, he visits some jaw-dropping, colourful sites as well as little-known gems that rarely get a mention. Along the way he explores the rich history, culture and cuisine of Greece and meets some truly unique people.

"Being of Greek heritage myself, I just love Greece so much," he said. Over the years, whenever my wife and I visited, she’d take videos of me where I’d describe the sights. That gave me the idea to put together a show where I could share all these amazing places that I love to visit with other people."

With 6,000 islands, 227 of which are inha-bited, Greece is truly a fascinating place. "Every island has its own person-ality, so the diversity is endless, Peter said. "For instance, the 17sqkm island of Oinousses is home to 30 shipping families and is completely unique. Most people look at Greece and think of the usual top destinations of Santorini, Mykonos, Corfu, Crete and Athens. They forget about all the other islands. I really wanted to show people that there’s so much more to experience.

Peter’s personal story is an inspiring rags to riches tale. Born to Greek migrants Peter is the co-founder and CEO of one of Australia’s most successful companies in the design and construct-ion industry, Ganellen, taking on major throughout Australia and New Zea-land.

When he is not over-seeing the business, Peter spends every chance he can get to explore Greece and has the ultimate ambition of visiting all 227 inhabited islands. In addition to series one, series two has also been shot, and will take viewers to the Northern Aegean and Western Cycladic regions, from the centre of the Eastern Orthodox faith in Mt Athos, to the islands of Thassos in the north.

Series one has already gained enormous interest throughout the globe having secured licensing rights in 40 countries so far including Greece, Spain, Egypt, Russia and the UAE.

"You only live once, so it’s important to get the most out of your life and have incredible experiences no matter what," says Peter. "I can’t wait to entertain, educate and inspire viewers to make the Greek Islands their next holiday destination!"

Produced by top TV production company The Rusty Cage, My Greek Odyssey, commences on Sunday March 24 and will run for 13 one-hour long episodes.
