Former “That 70′s Show” star Laura Prepon will play talk-show host Chelsea Handler in a new NBC sitcom based on the younger years of the E! employee, according to Deadline.
Based on Handler’s autobiography “Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea”, the multi-camera comedy will be written and executive produced by ”Dharma & Greg” co-creator Dottie Zicklin and Julie Larson and executive produced by Handler.
For those not in the know, Handler was originally a barmaid. The show will fix on the comedienne’s time spent behind the bar and her openness to talk about sex and her love for alcohol.
Be interested to see how this turns out.
