Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer’s web series Broad City has been given a pilot order by Comedy Central. Amy Poehler, Dave Becky, Sam Saifer, Jacobson, and Glazer will be executive producing the series which will star Jacobson and Glazer. The pilot episode will be based on Jacobson and Glazer’s popular web series.
Broad City, the web series, has been nominated for the ECNY’s Best Web Series award.
Broad City follows two girls, played by Jacobson and Glazer, throughout their daily lives in New York City, making the smallest and mundane events hysterical and disturbing to watch all at the same time. Referred to as “sneak-attack feminism” by The Wall Street Journal, their dynamic relationship, combined with their impeccable comedic timing and chemistry, has earned the two comedians praise from The New York Times, Time Out NY, The Fader, and AV Club, among others.
