Chelsea Handler Scores Big, Lands Her Own Talk Show On Netflix
Even though Chelsea Handler just finished telling people she needed to extricate herself from the world of celebrities, she announced a brand new partnership with Netflix.
The 39-year-old comedian will be ending her 7-year stint with the E! Network in August, but she’s not ending her career as a talk show host.
Netflix just announced they are teaming up with Handler to create a game-changing talk show. Handler explained the decision in a statement released by Netflix.
“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.”
As for Netflix? Well, they’re looking forward “to reimagining the late night talk show”. The development of the show is still in the early stages, so no one knows exactly how this format will work on a streaming service.
But we are excited to see what they come up with. In addition to the new talk show, Handler will also partner up with Netflix to create five comedy specials.
Sounds like she had this planned the entire time.
