Premieres October 9, 2014, 8 PM on WQED-TV & WQED.org

Pittsburgh From The Water is WQED's exciting, new documentary showcasing the waters of Western Pennsylvania. From the spectacular point in Downtown Pittsburgh, to picturesque lakes and sleepy streams in outlying counties, the program will spotlight the beauty, work and play associated with our waterways.

Multiple Emmy® Award winner Paul Ruggieri is not only producing and editing the project, but also filming over four seasons. Viewers will enjoy scenes of ice fishing and ice boat racing in January. You'll sit inside a Regatta speed boat in July, cast a line with fly fishermen in October, capsize with a kayaker, hop onto a coal barge, navigate locks and dams - and much more!
