Amy Poehler: There's a same-sex hookup on 'Broad City' this season

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

'Broad City' evokes 'Pretty Woman' in season 2 trailer

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

See Abbi and Ilana of 'Broad City' create their own take on 'Stomp'

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.

Abbi and Ilana of 'Broad City' riff on classic Nickelodeon and gum

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

Watch Abbi and Ilana of 'Broad City' get high and eat cereal

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.”

Check out 'Broad City,' Amy Poehler's favorite new show -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

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

Comedy Central orders first season of Amy Poehler-produced 'Broad City'
