Netflix signs Chelsea Handler for talk show, specials

The late-night comedian, who is ending E!'s Chelsea Lately, her late-night comedy talk show, in August after a seven-year run, has signed a deal with the streaming service for several stand-up specials and, in 2016, a new talk show with a format to be decided later.
