Chelsea Handler’s Memoirs to be Adapted in TV Comedy

NBC will adapt television host Chelsea Handler‘s three autobiographical books into a comedy show, Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the comedy “is described as an autobiographical multi-camera comedy based on Handler’s life in her twenties.” The main character, also named Chelsea, will be patterned after Handler, but she will not be a professional comedian. Dharma & Greg co-creators Dottie Zicklin and Julie Larson will be in charge of the adaptation.

NBC recently picked up a script adapting Gretchen Rubin‘s stunt nonfiction memoir, The Happiness Project. Sex and the City veteran Kristin Davis will star in that series. (Via Shelf Awareness)
