Get Ready for Chelsea Handler's Netflix Talk Show

We're getting ready for MAKER Chelsea Handler's new Netflix talk show "Chelsea," set to premiere on Wednesday, May 11.

The new free-wheeling show will air three times a week with no actual topical comedy format, giving Handler the freedom to tackle a range of issues from visiting a transgender school to attending a training for 3- and 4-year-old Russian girl gymnasts.

Catch a sneak preview of the talk show in the sassy trailer below:

"It's all stuff I find fascinating. I'm no longer on a network that just wants you to talk about celebrities, so I don't have to talk about celebrities. I'm just excited to be at Netflix. It's like stage two in my career," Handler said in an interview.

In the meantime, check out the four-part Netflix docu-series "Chelsea Does" which Handler says was "the perfect bridge" for her new show.
