In 2010, Ilana Glazer teamed up with fellow comic and New York’s Upright Citizen’s Brigade student Abbi Jacobson to launch Broad City, an online show capturing their life and quirky friendship. The web series jumped from the Internet realm and to Comedy Central after two seasons. With the help of Amy Poehler as executive producer, Glazer and Jacobson have been able to maintain creative control and the show’s integrity. “It's an intricate balance of policing your own brand, saying yes to some things, saying no to other things, making decisions quickly so that people don't go down a path of building on an idea and then 10 minutes later hand you a fully formed bit if it's not right,” Glazer told Fast Company in 2014. “You have to consider people's feelings but then you also have to not do that at some point, when it comes to the voice of the show.”
