Synopsis by Hal Erickson
First telecast over cable's ABC Family Channel on July 9, 2007, the weekly comedy-drama Greek starred Jacob Zachar as Rusty Cartwright, a nerdy college freshman. Like every other newcomer on campus, Rusty was "rushed" by all the fraternities, and after much consideration he decided to pledge at Kappa Tau Gamma. This was bad news for Rusty's older sister Casey (Spencer Grammer), who was running for the presidency of the girls' sorority Zeta Beta Zeta and didn't want her geeky kid brother messing up her chances. Scott M. Foster played Casey's ex-boyfriend Cappie, the president of Kappa Tau Gamma; Jake McDorman was Casey's current beau Evan, head of Kappa Tau's arch-rival Omega Chi Delta; Paul James was Rusty's best pal Calvin, whose family ties had forced him to bypass Kappa Tau in favor of Omega Chi, and who was afraid to tell anyone (except Rusty) that he was gay; (Clark Duke) was Rusty's roomie Dale, who unlike our hero was a religiously motivated "abstainer", determined NOT to lose his virginity at the first opportunity; and, respectively assuming the roles of Casey's best pal and staunchest rival Ashleigh and Rebecca, were Amber Stevens and Dilshad Vadsaria. Stereotypical to a fault, but a lot of fun all the same, Greek graduated to over-the-air TV when it was picked up by Family Channel's sister network ABC on July 13, 2007.
