The Amy Poehler-Produced Broad City Is Definitely Heading for Television


Fans of the webseries/beautiful brainchild of comedians Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer Broad City have been in limbo for months (years even!) wondering whether or not the show, which started in 2010, would eventually make the jump from the internet to television. For awhile, there was talk of a pickup by FX and then it was announced that Comedy Central had produced a pilot. So far, it’s all been pretty wishy-washy…until now. Broad City lovers rejoice — Comedy Central has officially ordered a 10-episode season and is planning to premiere it in 2014.

Glazer and Jacobson will remain the head writers and stars of Broad City and Amy Poehler, who is arguably series’ most famous fan, will act as executive producer. If you have yet to watch any of the Broad City webisodes, rest easy. You have an entire year to catch up.
