Amy Poehler to Produce ‘Broad City’ for FX

Amy Poehler is a woman of many talents, from her Emmy-nominated performance as clueless public servant Leslie Knope on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” from her off-screen role as Will Arnett’s better half. It seems that in addition to being one of the funniest women in show business, Poehler has some cred a producer, which she’ll soon bring to FX’s new show, “Broad City.”

Deadline reports that Poehler will be an executive producer of the half hour-long comedy, which stars Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, both alums of Poehler’s training ground, the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre.
