E! talk-show host Chelsea Handler is close to a deal for a new show. The New York Post reports that Handler, who has been the subject of widespread rumors about where she will land after E!, is closing in on a deal with Netflix.
The format hasn’t yet been decided, the piece adds.
Handler has said she would leave E! once her contract to host “Chelsea Lately” expired at year-end. Meanwhile, Netflix has been seeking to add edgy, original content, the story notes.
Representatives for Netflix and Handler declined to comment.
