What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the Comedy Central cable channel, Broad City follows two best friends — Ilana (Ilana Glazer) and Abbi (Abbi Jacobson) — as they navigate their twenties in New York City. In the fourth season, Comedy Central says, “Abbi and Ilana will experience NYC in a whole new way: the dead of winter.” They’ll also get new jobs, mark their “Friendiversary,” experiment with mushrooms, explore being witches, and take a trip to Florida. Hannibal Buress, John Gemberling, Stephen Schneider, Arturo Castro, Paul W. Downs, Chris Gethard, Eliot Glazer, Susie Essman, Bob Balaban, and Nicole Drespel recur on the series.
