Amy Poehler to produce Comedy Central series

Cabler orders 'Broad City' pilot of Jacobson/Glazer web series

Comedy Central has ordered a pilot of web series “Broad City,” which Amy Poehler is exec producing with creators and stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer.

Jacobson and Glazer are alums of the Upright Citizens Brigade, co-founded by Poehler. Dave Becky and Sam Saifer are also exec producing the pilot.

The New York City-set project follows two femmes played by Jacobson and Glazer through events both hysterical and disturbing.

“Amy Poehler told me this would be a great show for us, and that’s good enough for me,” said Comedy Central original programming and production topper Kent Alterman.
