'Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea': Chelsea Handler NBC Pilot Picked Up For Series

Posted: Updated:

Chelsea Handler, it seems, is slowly taking over all of Hollywood.

Already the host of "Chelsea Lately" and "After Lately" on E!, and the just-announced star of horror-comedy "Mall," Handler is heading to network TV; her sitcom pilot for NBC has just been optioned to series for next year.

Based on her memoir, "Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea," Handler will executive produce and co-star as Sloane Hanson, fictionalized version of her older sister. Laura Prepon, best known as Donna from "That 70's Show," will play the role of Chelsea.
