Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer check in to make sure that they have everything they’ll need to survive in Tr**p’s America.
Broad City was created by and starring Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson. It was developed from their web series of the same name, which was independently produced from 2009 to 2011. The creation of the web series began after Glazer received poor feedback on a project she and a partner had been working on. After expressing her frustration to Jacobson, the two decided to work on a project together, eventually creating the web series Broad City. The series is based on Glazer and Jacobson’s real life friendship, and their attempt to “make it” in New York. Amy Poehler is one of Broad City’s executive producers, and appeared in the webseries finale. The series premiered on Comedy Central on January 22, 2014.
The second season premiered on January 14, 2015 while the third season premiered on February 17, 2016. The series has also been renewed for a fourth and fifth season. On December 7, 2016, the girls announced August 2017 as the premiere date for the fourth season which is being shot in winter as opposed to their typical summer shooting schedule.
