Broad City

Finalist in TV Show

About Broad City

Originally a web series starring Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, Broad City is now an Amy Poehler-produced Comedy Central favorite. The show follows the lives of two 20-something best friends in New York City and has even created a new pop-culture vernacular amongst its fans (YAS KWEEN!). Despite the show’s success on TV, Abbi and Ilana said they feel an obligation to create uncensored web-only content to pay homage to their comedic roots, which has generated their video series Hack Into Broad City, encouraging viewers to, for instance, dress as Ruth Bader Ginsberg for Halloween or go to work as an act of protest against Columbus Day.
