NBC Making a TV Show Based on Chelsea Handler’s Life


NBC has picked up a pilot, Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea, based on funny lady and late-night host Chelsea Handler’s three memoirs. The show, a multi-camera comedy that will not star the very busy Handler, is about a twentysomething named Chelsea (Fake Chelsea), who shares many characteristics with the Real Chelsea, though Fake Chelsea will not be an actress or comedienne. One assumes Fake Chelsea will love alcohol, but will she also start dating the CEO of Comcast? Time will tell! [Deadline]
