Are you still jonesin’ for more Broad City? Comedy Central just released a new featurette about the TV show.
The comedy series, which ended this year after five seasons, follows two best friends — Ilana (Ilana Glazer) and Abbi (Abbi Jacobson) — as they navigate their twenties in New York City. The cast also includes Hannibal Buress, John Gemberling, Stephen Schneider, Arturo Castro, Paul W. Downs, Chris Gethard, and Nicole Drespel.
In the short documentary Abbi and Ilana’s Broad City, released exclusively on digital platforms, fans can get an inside look at the making of the iconic Broad City. The doc follows the critically-acclaimed show from its beginnings as a web series to its emotional series finale and features interviews with Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, cast and crew. Watch here.
In concert with the final season, Broad City partnered with online bidding site Screenbid to auction off rare props, wardrobes, set decorations and other iconic items from the show. For the first time in Screenbid history, 100% of the revenue went to a nonprofit. Abbi and Ilana selected Lemontree, a New York City nonprofit that helps low-income families set the table with a dignified, affordable and healthy dinner. Now that the auction is completed we’re proud to share it raised over $48,000 for the charity!”
