‘Broad City’ Teases Hillary Clinton Episode

Comedy Central unveiled a teaser for the new episode of “Broad City,” in which Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will make a cameo.

The teaser, for the episode “Hail to the Kween,” says that “a very special guest comes to ‘Broad City,'” but it does not show the candidate.

Clinton shot her cameo in December, then tweeted out a photo with stars/creators Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer.

According to The Verge, at a panel at SXSW over the weekend, Jacobson said that even though Clinton is appearing, “We’re not making a political stance here. It was really more that this is something Ilana’s character would do. And Hillary, regardless of where we stand — and we love Hillary — Hillary is such an iconic figure right now and she has been.”

Presidential candidates have been making cameos on “Saturday Night Live.” Donald Trump hosted the NBC sketch show in November, promoting some rivals to demand equal time. But the rules aren’t as clear when it comes to cable programming like “Broad City.” Back in the 2008 cycle, USA Network continued to run “Law & Order” reruns featuring Fred Thompson, who was running for the Republican nomination, after concluding that the equal time provisions did not extend to cable networks.
