Chelsea Handler is taking over our TVs! In fact, the comedian is taking over our computers, tablets, phones and any other Netflix-enabled devices when her new Netflix talk show “Chelsea” airs its anticipated premiere on Wednesday.
Three times a week, Handler will star in her very own series starting May 11. And according to the trailer of the upcoming installment, which airs every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in over 190 countries, she’ll tackle several controversial subjects from politics to health and even polygamy.
“My name is Chelsea. And that’s also the name of my new talk show,” the host says in a promo video. “I’m treating this show like the college education I forgot to get.”
Throughout Handler’s 30-minute episode talk show, which was inspired by her four-part Netflix docu-series “Chelsea Does,” the blond haired actress will travel to Russia, Japan and across the United States to explore her topics. The upcoming series, produced in Los Angeles, will also feature a slew of celebrity guest stars like tennis star Maria Sharapova, who will whip Handler into shape, “Milk” actor Diego Luna and U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King.
The episodes will be taped in advance but Handler dished during a Periscope Q&A in March that the show will air “about 12 hours after we tape it.”
Netflix will stream its very first “Chelsea” episode on Wednesday, May 11, at 3 a.m. EDT. Fans of the comedian can expect her Thursday and Friday show to be released at that same time on their respective dates. However, only Netflix subscribers can tune into the chaos. The streaming provider starts at $7.99 per month but new users can take advantage of Netflix’s free 30 day trial.
