Chelsea Handler Inks First-Look Deal With Universal TV & Uni TV Alternative Studio

Chelsea Handler recently wrapped her Netflix talk show Chelsea. Before that, she did a successful seven-year run as host of E!’s Chelsea Lately, which came to an end in 2014 after she opted not to renew her contract and made headline-making comments about the NBCUniversal network. Handler also executive produced and starred in the 2016 Netflix documentary series Chelsea Does, in which she tackled such issues as marriage, Silicon Valley, racism and drugs. She will continue her working relationship with Netflix for another original documentary series, which will focus on the notion of white privilege. – Nellie Andreeva, Deadline Hollywood
