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