Chelsea Handler to Helm Grand Central Imprint

Bestselling memoirist and TV host Chelsea Handler will launch a new imprint at Hachette’s Grand Central Publishing division. It will be called Borderline Amazing/A Chelsea Handler Book, opening with three books.

The comedian’s production company, Borderline Amazing Productions, will oversee the imprint. Lies that Chelsea Handler Told Me will be the imprint’s first release and it’s due out in May 2011. Another title will feature “the byline of her long-suffering dog, Chunk.”

DeadlineNY offered this quote from Handler: “I’ll be editing and overseeing, while my family and friends make money off me and get something back from the torture I’ve put them through. I’ve got a couple other ideas and people I want to see write books.”

Handler’s three books will be adapted into a comedy show on NBC. The show will be named after Handler’s second memoir, Are You There Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea.
