In 2009, she teamed with Abbi Jacobson and they co-created the web series, Broad City. In the series, they are also the main actresses as fictionalized versions of themselves. It garnered so much positive criticism and was nominated for an ECNY Award for ‘Best Web Series’. American actress and comedian, Amy Poehler, was intrigued by the web series and met up with Glazer and Ms. Jacobson and agreed to appear in the series’ finale as well as help the duo to shop a pilot script based on the series.
Successfully, the three ladies came up with the pilot script and with Poehler as the producer, FX cable network bought the script but made a decision not to proceed with development. Jacobson and Glazer then approached Comedy Central who bought the script from FX and ordered a pilot.
