First Look at Chelsea Handler’s Netflix Talk Show ‘Chelsea’
We’re still not sure what to make of Netflix hosting its own late-night talk series (it can be hard enough keeping up with the appointment ones), but will Chelsea Handler’s Chelsea start a trend? We’ll find out mid-May, so check out a first look and a new synopsis.
Netflix released a new official teaser for the half-hour series, which premieres on May 11 at 12:01 A.M., airing on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays (but always streamable thereafter). For a clearer look, check out the synopsis for Chelsea:
Chelsea is back with a freshly stamped passport and new global outlook as she tackles today’s tough issues with the same acerbic wit and fearless curiosity you know and love.
Handler tossed the traditional talk show model out the window for Netflix’s first-ever talk show. Join Chelsea as she travels around the world – from Russia, Japan, and Mexico City, across the U.S. and back again to Sony Pictures Studios, where she tapes in front of a LIVE in-studio audience – to explore the subjects that matter most to you.
Yes, there will be guests, and many of whom will be celebrities whose faces you have plastered on your bedroom ceiling (am I the only one who still does that?). But the show will let you see them, and Chelsea herself, as you’ve never seen them before, engaging in thought-provoking, yet hilarious conversations about topics like international cultures, alternative lifestyles, education, health, sports, parenting, politics, and more.
Along with a first poster:
See for yourself on May 11, as Chelsea kicks off a new wave of late-night.
