The “Broad City” co-creator’s first special, titled “The Planet Is Burning,” will shoot on Wednesday at the White Oak Music Hall in Houston, TX and premiere exclusively on the streaming platform.
The critically acclaimed “Broad City,” which she originally created as a web series with Abbi Jacobson, came to an end earlier this year after five seasons on Comedy Central. The duo also recently signed a first-look deal with Comedy Central and Viacom Television networks and currently have two projects, “Mall Town USA” and “Young Professionals,” in development at the former under the new pact.
Glazer announced the special via a video on her Instagram:
