Broad City is an American comedy television series, 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.
Broad City's fourth season premiered on September 13, 2017. The series is contracted for a fifth season.
