Abbi Jacobson Speaks Out About The Unfair Expectations Of Female-Led Shows
Abbi Jacobson - otherwise known as one half of Broad City - is not holding back. The writer, actor and artist has spoken out about the double standards for women in television.
Coming as a surprise to no one, Jacobson spoke of the higher expectations for women in the industry:
"You have to be everything. Female-driven shows have to be every single thing, and are constantly criticised in a way that male-driven shows are not."
In the interview with Marie Claire, she also spoke of reconciling herself to the high expectations that come with the show:
"You can't please everybody. It's something I have to continually remind myself of—especially as the show is about to premiere. Everything is not for everybody, and that's okay—that's why there's so much content. If someone doesn't like it, I can't really do much about it."
Broad City returns to the UK October 17 on Comedy Central.
