Chelsea Handler has signed a deal to present a new talk show on internet TV company Netflix as well as four docu-comedy specials and a stand-up special.
Chelsea Handler has signed a deal with Netflix to present a new talk show.
The 39-year-old comedienne has agreed to front the series on the internet TV network from early 2016 across all Netflix territories in the world simultaneously but will be working for the company this year and in 2015.
Speaking about the deal, Chelsea - who announced earlier this year she is bowing out from her E! Show 'Chelsea Lately' - said: ''If I was going to continue working in this industry, I knew I had to do something outside the box to keep myself interested. I wanted to sit with the cool kids at lunch so I approached Netflix to make sure they were as cool as I thought they were, and when I confirmed my suspicions, like with any other future lover, I made my move. I'm more excited than I've been in a while, and the team at Netflix is the most forward-thinking, alert group I've sat down with in ages. No offence to the Shahs Of Sunset.''
Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos says the company is delighted to have signed the comic, adding: ''Chelsea has built a huge following on tour, on nightly TV and through her best-selling books and we can't wait to introduce her breathtakingly honest and irreverent voice to our global membership.''
Before the revolutionary new series starts, Chelsea will appear in a special on-hour stand-up show - featuring her 'Uganda Be Kidding Me Live' routine - for Netflix which will be filmed at the Harris Theater in Chicago on June 20 and broadcast on October 10.
In 2015, Chelsea will film four docu-comedy specials for Netflix and will be followed by cameras as she tries to learn more about various subjects such as NASCAR, the workings of Silicon Valley and the NBA player draft.
