Broad City Season 1
Premiere Date: Jan 22, 2014
Amy Poehler is an executive producer for this comedy, the brainchild of comedians Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, who also star as Ilana and Abbi, a pair of twentysomething, pot-smoking best friends in New York City who seem to have an inexhaustible supply of awkward situations, absurd encounters and excellent excuses for not working too hard?if at all. In Season 1, Abbi and Ilana try to scrounge up the money to buy tickets for a secret Lil Wayne concert; Abbi bug bombs her apartment, and Ilana loses her keys, so the ladies face a life on the streets just in time for Abbi's first art gallery show; and Abbi promises a neighbor she'll wait for his package, but misses its delivery, so she goes to extremes to recover it. Their inner circle includes Lincoln (Hannibal Buress), Bevers (John Gemberling), Jeremy (Stephen Schneider) and Jaimé (Arturo Castro), and the list of guest stars includes Fred Armisen, Rachel Dratch, Janeane Garofalo, Jason Mantzoukas and Amy Sedaris.
