Abbi Jacobson & Ilana Glazer (Broad City)  

Stars of the Comedy Central Series "Broad City"

Past topics have included yoga, dating, giving a homeless person money, running to get the last cookies at a favorite bakery, and buying pot for the first time in a long time and they perfectly capture the minutia of Big Apple life and all of the awkwardness, worrying, and idealism associated with it. (And just like their Manhattan-centric progenitor Woody Allen, they aren't afraid to use jazz scores.) Amy Poehler worked with the duo (who also do a monthly stage show at New Yorks UCB theater) to develop a series, and Comedy Central made a deal to shoot a ten-episode season called "Broad City that aired in 2014.

Broad City is an American sitcom created by Glazer and Jacobson, who also star as the series leads. Amy Poehler is one of Broad City's executive producers, and appeared in the series' season one finale. The third season premiered on February 17, 2016. The series has also been renewed for fourth and fifth seasons, with the fifth season set to be the final season in 2019.

How Broad City Became the Greatest Show on Television

At 8 a.m. on one of the coldest days of the winter, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson are thawing on a couch in a regal room at New York’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel in midtown. The duo have just returned from Los Angeles (Glazer was shooting a miniseries, Jacobson “just working”), and now they are in the thick of promotion for the third season of Broad City, their zeitgeisty, boundary-pushing show, which is hands down the funniest, most tightly produced 25 minutes on television.
