Katie Couric Talks with the ‘Broad City’ Ladies About Writing, UCB, and Their TV Friendship

With season 2 of Broad City is complete and season 3 is officially on the way, Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer recently sat down with Katie Couric for an interview about all things Broad City-related, from how they first met at the Upright Citizens Brigade to how Amy Poehler helped them turn it into a Comedy Central show to how they craft storylines and characters based on their real-life experiences. Couric asked them how seriously they take themselves as TV role models, and they both offered great responses: “Less often we see women with this platform to have their voice, but I think there’s something to being an imperfect role model,” Glazer says, “because it’s like, women do things that we can emulate, but also they can mess up.” Jacobson added: “The show’s being praised for having a strong female friendship, and it’s like, that should be everywhere! Why is this not the norm? It’s kind of ridiculous.”
