Chelsea Handler Lands NBC Movie Deal

Deadline Hollywood’s Nellie Andreeva is reporting that Chelsea Lately host Chelsea Handler just landed a big TV movie deal with NBC. Only, she won’t actually be in the film. NBC is making a primetime comedic movie named after Handler’s book Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea.

More from Andreeva:

The comedy will be centered on a twentysomething woman named Chelsea who won’t have the same profession as comedian/author Handler but will carry a lot of the traits in her character as depicted in Handler’s 3 best-selling autobiographical books: My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands, Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea and Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang. The compilations of humorous essays about Handler’s everyday life, family, friends and romantic/sexual relationships will also be used as source material for stories in the TV project. Handler, who has hosted Chalsea Lately on NBC’s soon-to-be-corporate sibling E! since 2006, recently signed on to star in and produce¬†After Lately, a half-hour semi-scripted comedy¬†for the channel, which will follow the backstage goings at her latenight talk show.
