”Familie Foukara” is the title of a new TV series airing on Youtube that was created by Greek actors and actresses who live in Germany.

The ”Greek Theater Art” created this mini-series with the valuable assistance of Bessy Malfa, one of the most prominent Greek actresses of our times.

The series is a fast-paced comedy, with an excellent sense of humor, that shows the intricacies of the Greek community in today’s Germany.

The Story of the ”Familie Foukara” Series

The series takes place in Germany and showcases a much darker and surreal version of the ”eternal” Greek mother.

Vilma Foukara, played by Bessy Malfa, is the main character of the series and she has her reasons to be suspicious of everyone.

This is the reason why she constantly creates problems in the lives of others, but at the same time, makes her presence necessary to almost everyone.

The first victim of Vilma’s meddling is her son, Chris Foukaras, a descendant of this wealthy Greek family in Germany, who knows how to live the good life.

Chris, however,  faces a crucial dilemma; what is the priority in his life? Is just money enough to bring happiness?

What should he prioritize? Love or career? What happens when a simple waitress becomes his closest -and sometimes annoying- friend? How should he react? Is her class an obstacle or not?

Another crucial question that needs some answers is what will Asimina do?

Asimina is Chris’ friend, but what does she have in mind for him? Viewers will need to find out what is the truth behind her actions.

This is where Chris’s mother intervenes, of course. Having completely different plans for her son, just like any other Greek mother would do, Vilma plays a prominent role in her son’s life.

However, who knows what is better for us than ourselves? Should Chris listen to his mother?

The Cast

So, this is the main story of the ”Familie Foukara,” where love, tension, intrigue, and upheavals, all intertwine in a spectacularly humorous way.

This is also the reason why this new Greek series is guaranteed to make you laugh or even identify yourself with one of the main characters.

The full cast of the production includes Béssy Málfa, Giannis Boúsdros, Fotiní Topoúzoglou, María Sirkelídou, Giánnis Róvas, Chrysa Vasíliou, Rafaelia Pangídou, Dionísis Gkenés, Stérgios Ziákas, Marínos Kótsoglou, Réna Márkou, Ioánna Níkou, and Charálampos Moschópoulos.

The scenario is written by Bessy Malfa and Giannis Bousdros.

The direction of the series was conducted by Stefanos Kontomaris and Bessy Malfa.
