Broad City‘s Abbi and Ilana have a lot of hobbies: smoking weed, ditching work, smoking more weed—but this season they’re getting a new one, apparently. In a new trailer for the Comedy Central show’s second season, the two lounge in a pool drinking tropical cocktails as they ogle shirtless, toned men. READ FULL STORY

Best of 2014 (Behind the Scenes): Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer talk 'Broad City' music video, allergy attack
Broad City, a Comedy Central show created by Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, had a lot of memorable moments in its debut season. There was the time Ilana was a poop ninja, the time Abbi and Ilana almost had an accidental foursome, the time Abbi went on a too-long trip to retrieve a package. But two of the most memorable scenes didn’t include sex or poop, but instead focused on the two main characters.
One of these scenes is a music video where Abbi and Ilana celebrate cashing a big check, rap video style. Another is the time the two go out to a fancy dinner to celebrate Abbi’s birthday — only for Ilana to have an over-the-top allergic reaction to the shellfish. Both showcase just how ridiculous Jacobson and Glazer are willing to get — and just how funny they are.
Jacobson and Glazer talked to EW about the making of those scenes — what inspired them, where the costumes came from, and how Jacobson rejected a stunt person. READ FULL STORY
Holiday parties can be uncomfortable — but don’t worry: Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are here to tell you how to combat that inevitable awkwardness this holiday season.
Their suggestions include raiding the medicine cabinet for “boner pills,” avoiding snobby hipsters, and crafting a fake herpes sore out of peppermint bark to avoid an unwanted under-the-mistletoe kiss. READ FULL STORY
Broad City is a lot of things, but it is not necessarily parent-appropriate: The Comedy Central show covers topics ranging from hiding weed in vaginas to accidental foursomes. But as it turns out, Broad City first began as a web series in part because of its creators’ parents.
“We came to a point where we wanted to make more permanent material,” Broad City‘s co-creator and star Ilana Glazer said at Sunday’s Paley Center and New York Comedy Festival event, “Id Isn’t Always Pretty: An Evening with Broad City.” Before the web series, before the half-hour show, Glazer and Abbi Jacobson were doing improv at New York’s Upright Citizens Brigade. “Something we say is we wanted to send our parents links.” READ FULL STORY
The women of Broad City are back. In a new trailer for the second season of the Comedy Central show, Abbi does her best Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman when a surly salesperson (played by Orange Is the New Black‘s Kimiko Glenn) doesn’t remember her and Ilana. “Big mistake. Big. Huge,” she says, with a perfect shrugging of shopping bags. READ FULL STORY
Anything can be a drum in the latest episode of Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer’s “Hack Into Broad City”—a desk, a lap, a bed, a pizza box, an actual drum… even Ilana’s left boob. Naturally.
They all come into play in the webseries’ fourth installment, premiering exclusively on EW.com. The rhythm’s gonna get you if you press “play” below—just make sure to exercise caution if you do end up playing your chest.
Yes, Comedy Central’s Broad City—the show that Girls would be, if Girls were funny—still isn’t returning until January 2015. The good news: In the meantime, you can whet your appetite for all things Abbi and Ilana with their new webseries, Hack into Broad City—which is basically the show itself, shortened and boiled down to its most essential elements (Abbi, Ilana, weed, friendship).
In the series’ second episode, premiering exclusively on EW.com, the broads do some housework (Abbi’s cleaning out her fridge; Ilana is… cleaning a pair of boobs?) and chat about everything from old spinach to Alex Mack to how gross gum is. Like, as a concept. Watch it here: READ FULL STORY
Broad City announced its January 2015 return in a way only Broad City could: with a video of Abbi and Ilana getting high and eating cereal over video chat. The video, which comes via Vulture, is the first of a web series called Hack into Broad City, and is pretty self explanatory—Abbi and Ilana pour themselves a variety of cereals, take hits, add milk, and then proceed to consume said cereal, marveling at their work.
It’s the joy of Broad City in its purest, most elemental form—just Abbi and Ilana hanging out. “It’s like an Epcot,” Abbi says of her bowls. “You know who would love this?” Ilana adds. “People who are starving.”
What’s on Amy Poehler’s must-watch list for 2014? (Hint: it’s not season 2 of Swamp Pawn.)
In this week’s issue, the Parks and Recreation star raves about Broad City, the new show she’s producing for Comedy Central. (It premieres Jan. 22 at 10:30PM.)
If that title sounds familiar, that’s probably because its creators and stars, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, have already earned a cult following for the web series that inspired it, which featured them riffing on their fabulously awkward lives as twentysomething New Yorkers. (You might also recognize Glazer from the viral video “S–t New Yorkers Say.”) Poehler and fellow funny people Kristen Schaal and Hannibal Buress have appeared in the web series, and Girls creator Lena Dunham counts herself among its fans.
“I remember seeing the episode [where] Ilana was sensual dancing for Hannibal,” Dunham tells EW. “I thought, ‘These girls are geniuses.'” READ FULL STORY
A few City girls just got a green light from Comedy Central: The network announced today that it had ordered 10 episodes of scripted comedy Broad City, which is executive produced by Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler and stars Upright Citizens Brigade vets Abbi Jacboson and Ilana Glazer. An adaptation of their web show Broad City, the scripted comedy will follow the adventures of two twentysomething friends in New York City who are, as Poehler recently summed up to EW, “struggling every day to get through the day.” READ FULL STORY
