FX Bringing BROAD CITY To TV With AMY POEHLER

The awesome web series Broad City is making its way to television. FX is making it happen with Amy Poehler set to executive produce.

According to Deadline, FX has ordered a half-hour project from creators and stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Grazer. The two come from Upright Citizens Brigade and the show has had Poehler guest star on the series.

The series revolves around the lives of two best friends, played by Jacobson and Glazer as they go through daily life in Manhattan, and sometimes Brooklyn.

Poehler will executive produce along with Jacobson and Glazer. She is a fan of the series and her star power likely helped move along the order process.

The show will join other "offbeat comedies" like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Louie, Wilfred, and The League. The show would be the first with female stars at the network.
