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.
You all are haters, Chelsea is crazy, funny and obviously a lot more intelligent then you idiots – just saying – what have you done with ur life? GO CHELSEA YOU ARE AMAZING!!!
Chelsea Handler is about as funny as a clump of mud. Oh wait, she'll fit right in with the NBC crowd of lameness. NBC, would you just stop acting like you're trying, already? Nobody buys it.
No one watches network news. Their sows tank. Sports are about to go to places like the NFL network...I guess all that is left is LCD. Maybe Chris Matthews can have a guest spot.
This is akin to NBC slamming its head against the wall repeatedly and hoping it won't hurt one of these times.
35? Really? Is that the story she's going with?

Oh, please NBC, say it ain't so. This woman is not funny, just annoying.
Nick, You speak the absolute truth. Loud, whiny, mean. Totally unfunny.
I Love Chelsey and I'm happy for her. She has come a long way and it is her time to shine. Some of you people should really go play in rush hour traffic!!!!
This is toooooooo easy http://Freelaptops4you.com
I don't know if they carry this show up here in Alaska....but anyways, it doesn't matter because I am keeping busy killing all the moose up here....working 24/7 just to hunt for my next meal......
Oh goody first annoying Jenny McCarthy now treble annoying Chelsea Handler yah I would really really like to watch her oh another bottom of the ratings show for NBC
She has never been funny, ever, who cares.
Wow. You guys are a bunch of masogenists and haters! Chelsea is funny, beautiful, and awesome and I'd totally do her AND hang out with her!
But the funny gene is mostly a male one :)
I like Turtles!!!
It is sad that there are so many female comedianes struggling to make it but this marginally talented women keeps getting more and more popular. Lowest common denominator comedy. Count me out.
Welcome to the world of NBC, where only the marginally talented get picked up for a 2nd season....viva la Jimmy Smits!!!
I'd like to stick her the meat.
Chelsea should have this woman on! LOL
I wonder if her new show will go from funny and original to overly political, offensive and unfunny like her and her career.
At which point they will either do a musical episode, or a lesbian kiss...take your pick
screw Chelsea Handler. Go and listen to Hollywood Babble-On with Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman to understand how i truly feel.
Go listen to OTHER people to learn how I truly feel? Why can't we just listen to you to learn how you truly feel?
The book was great, but how are they going to make this into a prime time comedy? the stories in the book are best suited for cable
Gotta love a drunk chick who likes catching the bone.
And you are the bone tosser correct?
YOU GUYS ALWYAS PUT BAD UP BAD PICTURES OF MODERATELY ATTRACITVE PPPL ON HERE MAKING THEM LOOK REVOLTING CAN YOU LOOK IN YOUR ARKIVES FOR A BETTER ONE IM SURE YOU HAVE ONE
