Comedian Chelsea Handler's life is just one big joke – which makes it the perfect material for a new TV show.
Deadline.com reports that NBC is developing a pilot for "Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea," an autobiographical comedy named for the second of Handler's three humor books and based on her life in her 20s.
The 35-year-old "Chelsea Lately" host – who is co-producing the new show - won't star in the series, nor will the lead character be a comic, but the storylines will draw from her best-selling essays about dating, sex, family and her everyday experiences.
Besides producing the NBC series, Handler is also keeping plenty busy with "After Lately," an upcoming scripted comedy for E! that will examine what happens behind the scenes at her late-night talk show, and is currently filming the movie "This Means War" with Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy.
