Broad City is filming a pilot, and we need a budget to pay for talented cast, crew, locations, equipment ect. Welcome to Broad City!
We are Broad City. You are Broad City. We are all Broad City.
More specifically, we are Abbi Jacobson + Ilana Glazer. Broad City is our web series that began release in February 2010 and has acquired a quaint but incredibly loyal (and attractive) cult following.
Since you're probably related to us or close to it if you're reading this, you've seen Broad City start off as Broad Shitty and steadily make its way to Broad Pretty. Season 1 was produced out-of-pocket aka “for free." Season 2 is in full production mode right now, launching February 14th followed by 14 weeks of content release. We've worked with talented and passionate people who have accepted only food and fun for payment, and now we want to expand with a TV pilot.
But a pilot is too big to pay people in bagels. Or even pizza.
This pilot is going to be 22-30 minutes in length, shot in early Spring set, of course, in New York City, incorporating as many talented people within our magical community as possible. We’re taking Broad City to the next level in both production and plot, and to do this right, we need a budget. The budget will account for cast, crew, equipment rentals, locations, food, and post-production costs.
It’s inexplicably rewarding for us to see our ideas grow from conception to birth but only if we do it right -- being able to compensate people for their time and talent, being able to take advantage of what New York City has to offer, and being able to make Broad City TV-ready!
We know we can do this, but we also know we need help. Check out our web series, check out our website, and read our press page. If you like what you see, consider helping us elevate to a new medium.
