Chelsea Handler Working on Half-Hour Comedy for E!

October 12, 2010 (9:31 am) GMT
'After Lately' will not drive away from her talk show 'Chelsea Lately' too far, for it is a behind-the-scene look at show after the cameras are off.

This could be the project has been talking about when tackling the rumor that she's dating . The funny lady tweeted earlier this month, "Everyone, calm down. I met with mr. Cent about a potential project. There's nothing to report yet, ill let you know if there is."

Now a confirmation has arrived that Handler will be featured in a half-hour comedy series on E! where her late night talk show, "Chelsea Lately", is airing. Called "After Lately", it will examine the backstage goings-on at "Chelsea Lately" in a vein similar to HBO's "The Larry Sanders Show." Words are, the story outlines will be based on semi-improvisation, just like HBO's "".

"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," Handler told Daily Variety. That means others set to appear are Guy Branum, Sarah Colonna, Heather McDonald, Chris Franjola and Brad Wollack, who created the show with exec producers Tom Brunelle and Handler.

E! has ordered eight episodes and production will begin in a few weeks. No premiere date has been announced.
