Girls Take On Vancouver in New Comedy Web Series

Ever stepped back and thought about what it’s really like to “make it” in Vancouver? Brynn Peebles and Brianna Wiens created a hilarious new web series to depict just that: the trials and tribulations of two best friends living in the city and trying to “make it” or at least get a date – as they would put it.

With homage to characters and the storytelling of dynamic funny female characters like Elaine Benes, Carrie Bradshaw and Hannah Horvath, Girls vs. The City offers up a take on two “not-quite-millenials” and their bumpy road of love, life, work and lots of play.

Girls vs. The City is one of the 17 British Columbia creator project productions funded by this year’s web series category under Telus’ Storyhive program.

Together, Peebles and Wiens are known as Girl on Girl Humor, a comedic duo does live shows and makes videos on YouTube and now stars in their very own web series.  They originally pitched the pilot to Storyhive last year (and got funded) and further financed the project through crowdfunding on Kickstarter. Season 2 is currently in the works and is being funded by Storyhive.

There’s plenty of Vancouver-centric jokes and jabs including “The Coal Harbour” cocktail: you go down to the waterfront, you view an apartment, it’s beautiful, great, there’s 17 other people there, they bid cash, they outbid you, they do win, major bummer guys – come back to the bar, I punch you in the face, give you a shot of Jack, that’s $45.
