Chelsea Handler’s been an intriguing figure for the last two years, following her escape from E! and the celebrity gossip grind for a sexy new deal on Netflix. What exactly that deal would lead to was originally unclear — because binge-viewing and late night chatter don’t seem mutually conducive — but now we have a sense of what’s up, and when, more importantly, we can expect to see it.
This January, Handler’s four documentary specials, featuring her tackling the subjects of marriage, drugs, Silicon Valley and racism from her unique point of view, will premiere (as per usual, all at once) on the streaming service. Oh, and for those wondering how legit the “documentary” part of this equation is, the series is directed by Oscar and Emmy-nominated Eddie Schmidt (“This Film Is Not Yet Rated,” “Valentine Road”) and produced by Oscar award-winning Morgan Neville (“20 Feet From Stardom,” “Best of Enemies”).
Above, Handler goes a bit off the cuff to let America know she’s coming back. We’re still intrigued by what exactly that means.
