Chelsea Handler, the straight talking, gay friendly, hard drinking star of “E” networks talk show “Late Night With Chelsea Handler” (which my STR8 Twitter crush the extremely talented and funny Jeff Wild aka @jiffywild on Twitter is a writer and round table guest on) will have her own NBC sitcom based on her memoir “Are You There Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea,”
NBC has released a long teaser trailer, (posted above) and interestingly Laura Preppon of “That 70’s Show” will be playing “younger” Chelsea and Handler will be playing the role of her pregnant born-again Christian sister Sloane.
“Are You There Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea,” isn’t on the NBC line-up yet for next fall. But expect it if not in September then at least as a mid-season replacement.
