Comedian Grace Helbig will have a weekly prime-time talk show called The Grace Helbig Project on E! beginning in April, the network said today. Helbig is best known for her vlog series “It’s Grace” and “Daily Grace,” and she’ll apparently be bringing a more internetty style (and social-media focus) to the talk-show genre. E!’s announcement describes the series as a “comedy talk show hybrid,” and says, “every week she will invite viewers to interact with her on social media, using their Tweets, Vines and Instagrams to help shape the show.” Take that, Chelsea Handler.
