Comedy Central Picks Up the Fantastic Series “Broad City”

by Kelly Maxwell

Comedy Central has picked up ten episodes of Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer’s Broad City. The current webseries is a long time BUST favorite, so we are damn pleased to see our ladies finally make it big! UCB mainstays Jacobson and Glazer will star as awkward twenty-somethings trying to keep their collective shit together. Broad City has already gotten some major attention for its “sneak attack feminism” and the show was recently listed as one of the Top 25 Web Series Right Now.

Amy Poehler just signed on as producer, so expect the series to attract a lot more buzz. “I’m excited to work with Comedy Central and introduce Abbi and Ilanato America,” Poehler told Vulture. “And all the other countries. And also Mars. We’ve got big plans.” We are excited too!
