Comedy Central Renews Inside Amy Schumer for a Fifth Season, Broad City for a Fourth and Fifth Season, and Is Giving Abbi and Ilana a Mini-Series
As Comedy Central is in a current golden age with the likes of Nathan For You, Review, and Drunk History in addition to Inside Amy Schumer and Broad City, it just stands to reason that they would keep that going.
So, Broad City got picked up for two more seasons, which would bring Abbi and Ilana’s misadventures in the Big Apple to seasons 4 and 5 and got a mini series called Time Traveling Bong written by their writers Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs.
Comedy Central also announce that Inside Amy Schumer got its fifth season today and we can only imagine that Schumer is going to build off of the milestone year that she had in 2015 with her groundbreaking series.
Sony Adds Another Paul W. Downs/Lucia Aniello Movie To Their Development Slate
Sony Pictures is really getting into the Paulilu business.
Details on the story are scarce, but it looks like you should expect a crazy weekend that has gone terribly wrong involving some form of being incapacitated.
Following from The Duplass Brothers and Chris Miller and Phil Lord, Looks like another power comedy writing duo is on the rise.

Apparently, Paulilu and the Molyneux sisters are writing different versions of the same movie.
Wendy and Lizzie Molyneux have gotten Sony to buy their pitch for the female led version 21 Jump Street. Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello were already working on a script, but now the two pairs will be writing different scripts based on the pitches they sold.
There are no other details than that available at this time, but we wouldn’t be surprised if either movie is made, then the script for the other gets released online and people demand to see that one also get made.
Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello Are Writing a Female Led Spin-Off of “21 Jump Street” and That “Men in Black” Crossover Is in Development
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
You could ask “What hath Chris Miller and Phil Lord wrought?” but all of this could be just as self-reflexively fun as the original 21 Jump Street.
Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello who both write on Broad City and together comprised Paulilu are now set to write a female centric spin-off of the 21 Jump Street franchise. Don’t be surprised if the duo that ends up together resemble the duo of Broad City’s Abbi and Ilana.
Now that the dust has settled from the Sony hack of last year and the recent WikiLeaks dump, the development of a Men In Black and 21 Jump Street crossover movie has been confirmed. We certainly hope that there’s plenty of jokes within the movie poking fun at how ridiculous this project could be, which seems to be a stamp of Miller and Lord’s.
We’re not sure how much Jenko, Schmidt, Miller, or Lord will be involved, but we do hope that this bodes well for that 21 Jump Street sequel where they go to art school.
