Yinz Need to Watch 'Greg and Donny'

I am a proud native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but sometimes it's very hard for me to explain to people the... unique accent Pittsburghers have. Luckily, I found this awesome Web series called Greg and Donny which features some average yinzers (as they're called) in their funny day-to-day lives.

The series follows Health teacher, Greg, his big mouthed wife, Gina, and their unemployed buddy, Donny, as the three of them communicate via Web cams from their small Western Pennsylvania town (or tahn, as they say it.)

To get a better understanding of the series check out this episode where Greg gets picked on by coworkers for his Pixburgh accent.

The folks at Greg and Donny have also made a TV pilot for the show, which is going to be featured at the New York Television Festival. The show screens on September 21 at 8pm and September 22 at 5:15pm at the Tribeca Cinemas and it's free! Click here to get your tickets.

Yinz can check out the Web site for more episodes n'at, too.
