The ABC Family show “Greek” is based in the fictional Ohio town of Cyprus. It turns out the town name isn’t the only thing fictional about the show. Rusty, Cappie, and the rest of the student body are never seen wearing anything warmer than a sweater. I guess the show’s producers failed to do even the slightest research on Ohio weather. Greek is based on the events and social drama surrounding a few members of the Cyprus-Rhodes University Greek System. It is believed that the school is modeled after Miami or Ohio University. Through various clues in the show, it’s hinted that Cyprus-Rhodes is right outside Sandusky. While Greek is based in Ohio, the show is filmed primarily in Los Angeles at UCLA and the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.
