What's worse than living with a dysfunctional family? Working with them too. Grease Monkeys is a dark comedy drama series about an Asian family, all of whom work in the family business, Grand Trunk Garage.

Grand Trunk is owned by patriarch Mo (Marc Zuber) who spends most of his time worrying about daughter Rita (Archie Panjabi). Rita happens to be an ace mechanic who is more obsessed with cars than with fashion, make-up or finding a nice boy to settle down with. Mo's son Dave (Ahsen Bhatti), is a sexually irrepressible, irresponsible minor criminal. He runs the sales side of the business... mostly into the ground. Mo also has to contend with the ghost of his dead wife, Jasbir (Indira Joshi), and a talking dog.

And this is only the family - wait til you meet the friends.
