Abby Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, 'Broad City'
Glazer: I recently got lost in Transparent, which is a show about a father in his Seventies who transitions to become a woman. You can tell these characters are based on real people because the show feels so real. It's so specific. There's some dark comedy to it, but I find I've been weeping a lot more than usual lately. The way it uses flashback is un-fucking-believable, and every single detail — right down to the fashion choices — is spot-on. When Jeffrey Tambor plays Mort, he's kind of a weird dude. When he's playing Maura, he's normal and comfortable. I love that. When does Season Two come out? I want it now.
Jacobson: I'm a huge fan of [Transparent creator] Jill Soloway, because she wrote for Six Feet Under, which is my favorite show ever. The casting on Transparent is great, I love the butch lesbian played by Melora Hardin. She's such a dick! I couldn't believe it when I realize she was the same woman who played Jan on The Office.
