The Independent Filmmaker Project has announced that “Broad City” creators and stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson will host the 25th Annual IFPGotham Independent Film Awards. The news marks the latest attempt by IFP to highlight television after announcing the nominees for Breakthrough Series in both Long Form and Short Form categories last week.
“We’re excited to include Ilana and Abbi in the 25th anniversary Gotham Awards celebrations,” said Joana Vicente, Executive Director of IFP and the Made in NY Media Center by IFP. “As huge fans of ‘Broad City,’ we can’t wait to ring in 25 years of the Gothams with these funny ladies at the helm, and know their local flavor will be a unique addition to this year’s show.”
“We couldn’t be more excited about hosting the Gotham Awards and are humbled to be invited by IFP,” added Glazer and Jacobson simultaneously.
The duo is currently in post-production on the third season of “Broad City,” which will premiere on Comedy Central in February. The Gotham Awards will take place on November 30 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.
