Comedy Central has finally greenlit the small-screen adaptation of the hit web series Broad City. Starring Upright Citizens Brigade members Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobsom, the show about two funny women in New York quickly caught the attention of Amy Poehler, a UCB alum. Poehler will produce the show, which sounds like it could become Comedy Central’s version of Girls (although, to Broad City‘s credit, the online version actually predates Lena Dunham’s series).
