Netflix Signs Chelsea Handler For First Original Talk Show
If you love Chelsea Handler and have a Netflix subscription, this Thursday just got a little sweeter for you! Netflix just announced they will bring the E! network star on board for it’s first talk show.
The show is planned to debut in 2016 and will cover topical subjects in the entertainment news world. Although they haven’t said how often the show will air or what the format will look like exactly, Netflix hints that it will be a bit different than what people are used to watching.
“The Internet has disrupted many of the conventions of traditional television and together with Chelsea Handler, Netflix is looking forward to reimagining the late night talk show for the on-demand generation, starting with the late night part….” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos says in a statement.
Handler will also have a standup special for Netflix premiering this October & will also have 4 “docu-comedy” specials in 2015.
The main question is, will you tune in to see Chelsea on Netflix?
