We’re all starring in our our show

The first episode of the final season of Broad City is told through a social media story shot on the characters’ phones. It was a huge challenge: The opening episode came with a unique script and was filmed entirely on the iPhone (using six iPhone Xs that were constantly swapped in and out) over a four-and-a-half day shoot that saw the crew canvassing Manhattan, much like Abbi and Ilana do in the final product. They filmed in September and then entered into an edit that wasn’t completed unti...
