Pittsburgh-based reality series, Godfather of Pittsburgh premieres tonight on A&E

Posted By on Mon, Nov 10, 2014 at 1:59 PM

Apparently Pittsburgh has a “Godfather” and he has his own reality show debuting tonight on the A&E network at 10 p.m.

According to press material, the show focuses on local businessman Vincent Isoldi, who owns several local ventures including Club Erotica, a gentleman’s club in McKees Rocks. Post-Gazette TV critic Rob Owen has a first-episode recap and calls the show a “reality TV version of ‘The Sopranos’ with Yinzer accents and a title character who looks more like Michael Chiklis than James Gandolfini.”

Both the P-G and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review have larger stories on Isoldi, the shows’s claims of his actual Godfatherness and some of the show’s supporting characters including Isoldi’s father-in-law Junior Williams who did a four-year stretch, beginning in 2003, in federal prison for running an illegal gambling operation.
