The show, executive produced by Amy Poehler, stars Upright Citizens Brigade alums Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer as two friends in New York navigating their way through the mundane events of life. Along with Poehler, Jacobson, Glazer, 3 Arts' Dave Becky and Generate's Sam Saifer serve as executive producer, with Tony Hernandez as co-executive producer. The series is set to premiere in 2014.
The show was originally set up for fellow cabler FX, before it switched over to Comedy Central last year.
"Finally, there's a television show set in New York City," said Kent Alterman, president content development and original programming, Comedy Central. "I'm immensely proud that we have done it first."
