The Heart Of The Show

Jimmy's and Jenny's features two shows in one:

a modern sitcom about a Greek diner in the present,

and a feel-good throwback show about that same diner in the 80s.

It's a contrast between today's fast-paced, tech-consumed world and “simpler times” prior to the internet generation.

The two sync up as our six main characters come together and learn through flashbacks to find answers for the present.

The show is diverse. No matter who you are or how messed up your life is, everyone is accepted in this fun, loving, warm and wacky diner.

It has Greek roots, but it’s really about everyone. At its core, it’s about getting along, helping each other out, and creating a diverse family of friendships.

Heartwarming to GenX, reminiscent for Boomers, & featuring lessons for Millennials and Zoomers, this multicultural, multigenerational diner is proof we all have more in common as humans than that which divides us.
