When Ilana Rose Glazer was born in St. James, New York in 1987, she was known as Ilana Rose Glazer.

Abbi Jacobson, whom Glazer met at the UCB Theatre, appeared in the online series “Broad City” in 2009. There were excellent reviews of the web series from “Entertainment Weekly” and other major newspapers when it premiered in February 2010. Amy Poehler, the co-founder of UCB, watched the online series and met with the duo to help them shop around a pilot screenplay.
Ilana Glazer featured in the series finale. FX was the first network to exhibit interest in a possible “Broad City” TV series, and Poehler agreed to serve as a producer. Ilana and Abbi’s pilot was rejected by FX, so they offered it to Comedy Central. “Broad City” aired on Comedy Central on January 22, 2014, after the network purchased the screenplay from FX.
