AM Tonight Special: 'Broad City' Girls on How They Got Started

“Broad City” is only six episodes and it’s already getting critical acclaim. The series is the brain child of Upright Citizens Brigade alums Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, and Executive Producer Amy Poehler. Forget about the fact that the show is created by two women–perhaps we’re finally getting to the point where that is old news. What is new is how relatable, raw and hilarious this show is. The “Broad City” co-creators open up about discovering their love for making people laugh, the day jobs they took to support those creative dreams and how the duo met and began the series we’ve come to love.
