Netflix signs Chelsea Handler for new talk-show


With the recent announcements of Netflix acquiring exclusive rights to animation, live action television drama, comedy specials it came to light that E!’s Chelsea Handler has now officially signed a contract with the Netflix streaming giant to produce a new type of chat show once her show wraps on E! after the 8th season concludes.

Best known for her willing to never hold back on the topic she covers Netflix will give the new talk show which is supposedly going in a different direction will give the 38 year old a different type of talkshow and ultimately more freedom behind the camera, similar to when Howard Stern signed with Sirius XM.

While you won’t be watching Chelsea in action just yet as it’s dubbed that her talk-show will debut in early 2016 but later next year we’ll be getting a tease of what’s to come from her new comedy stand-up tour which will be exclusive to Netflix and as with the talk-show will also be in every Netflix region.

We can’t wait and after this the only thing Netflix could do next is get Live Sports onto Netflix!

To give you a tease here’s some of Chelsea’s best moments.
