Greek Salad

Tom and Mia have inherited a building in Athens from their grandfather. Tom wants to sell and invest in his startup, while Mia is anti-capitalist. The series weaves in contemporary issues like Greece's financial crisis and the debate over open borders vs strong border controls, while giving a feel of the city—an explosion of street graffiti with the Acropolis looming in the backdrop. The series is a spin-off of 2002 film L'Auberge Espagnole.
