Amy Poehler-Produced ‘Broad City’ Filming on Eldridge Today

A homegrown Upright Citizens Brigade sketch idea is making its way to cable television.
Broad City is the collective brainchild of comediennes Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer. It began in the club but morphed into an uber-popular web series. Fellow UCB alum Amy Poehler took notice and adapted the concept for Comedy Central (ten episodes ordered). The plot focuses on two friends in New York City “navigating their way though the minutiae that is life.” Think of it as a more watchable version of Girls.
Anyway, we bring this up because Broad City will be filming scenes in the neighborhood today. Requisite “no parking” signage is already in place along the northern trailhead of Eldridge Street.
The show is slated to premiere on Comedy Central in 2014.
