It’s been 14 months since Chelsea Handler said goodbye to her late night show Chelsea Lately on E! in August 2014, and fans have been anxiously awaiting her return to television. Before she left, Handler promised she had a deal in place at Netflix for a brand new hour special, a docuseries, and talk show.
Today Netflix released a promo video for the promised Netflix Documentary Series, and announced that the series will make its debut in January 2016.
Directed by Oscar and Emmy-nominated Eddie Schmidt and produced by Oscar award-winning Morgan Neville Chelsea Does is comprised of four films featuring Chelsea Handler exploring a range of subjects of personal and universal fascination, from marriage to drugs, to racism and Silicon Valley. Chelsea will be seen confronting the topics that connect humanity, having the hard conversations about things that are not easy to talk about, and, Netflix says, calibrating and learning who she is along the way.
