EW Editor Matt Bean Previews the ‘Fall TV Preview’ Issue

Chelsea Handler has not done many print interviews since ending her E! show. But one of them can be found in the “Streaming” section of Entertainment Weekly‘s 2014 “Fall TV Preview” double issue, on newsstands today.

Handler shares at least one scoop about her upcoming 2016 Netflix talk show as she answers “Five Questions” about her October 10 one-hour stand-up special for the website, Uganda Be Kidding Me. The “Streaming” section also highlights Jeffrey Tambor‘s Amazon show Transparent, Season Two of Amazon’s political drama Alpha House and the AOL series Making a Scene with James Franco.
