A close friendship, on and off screen. Abbi Jacobson and D’Arcy Carden are starring together in the new TV adaptation of A League of Their Own, and getting the chance to work together in a big way after a long friendship.

ET’s Cassie DiLaura was on the carpet at the premier of the new Amazon Prime Video series in Los Angeles on Thursday, and spoke with the pair about their history together.

“I feel really lucky that I get to do this with her,” shared Jacobson, who is both a star and co-creator of the show. “I met D’Arcy in a commercial acting class and I just feel like this is just the [next level]. Like we’ve worked together in Broad City but not like in this capacity and it just felt so special.”

“It made the dynamic of Carson and Greta just sort of jump way ahead,” Jacobson added, referring to her character, Carson Shaw, and Carden’s Greta Gill. “The chemistry’s there cause we’re so close as friends, and yeah, I just feel really lucky.”
