"Broad City" (TV show) on Comedy Central is a scripted comedy, based upon the critically acclaimed web series, that follows two friends in New York City, played by Upright Citizens Brigade alums Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, navigating their way through the minutiae that is life, making the smallest and mundane events strange and funny.

Described as "passionate, funny and sometimes raunchy" by The New York Times, their dynamic relationship, combined with their impeccable comedic timing and chemistry, has earned the two comedians praise from The Wall Street Journal, Time Out NY, The Fader, and AV Club, among others. The series has been nominated for the ECNY's "Best Web Series" award; Jacobson and Glazer also were nominated individually.

"Broad City" is executive produced by Jacobson, Glazer, Amy Poehler ("Parks and Recreation"), 3 Arts' Dave Becky and Generate's Sam Saifer. Tony Hernandez is co-executive producer. Brooke Posch is the executive in charge of production for Comedy Central.
