It'll be like Curb Your Enthusiasm, without the Emmy nominations.
Chelsea Handler has been given the chance by her nurturing
ex-boyfriend employers at E! to start up a new comedy called After Lately.
The network picked up an eight episode order of the half-hour comedy about the backstage goings-on at her E! late night show Chelsea Lately. And we weren't kidding when we said it would be like Curb. Sources explain that the show will follow a "story outline" format, so expect several unplanned shenanigans throughout. When asked about the new project, Chelsea explained:
"The show is a behind-the-scenes look at what happens at our office when the cameras are off. … A perfect platform for people who have no business being on camera."
The cast will include members of the Lately staff frequently seen on the roundtable like Guy Branum, Sarah Colonna, Heather McDonald, Chris Franjola, and Brad Wollack.
We'll see how it goes. If it takes off, consider the network officially owned by the state of NJ! Girl is making them bank!
Think U will tune in for the show?
