Sundance: 'Chelsea Does' Director Eddie Schmidt on Getting Real With Chelsea Handler For Netflix

26 January 2016 7:27 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

For months now, we've been waiting to find out what exactly it meant for comedian and host Chelsea Handler to leave "Chelsea Lately" and sign a deal with Netflix. But while the shape of her promised talk show has yet to be revealed, here's the documentary "Chelsea Does...," which features Handler taking on four specific topics — marriage, racism, technology and drugs — that interest her on different levels. Whether it's hating her iPhone or putting on a bright pink wedding dress, Handler gets real and personal for the four almost-feature-length installments, which happened to be guided by director Eddie Schmidt.

Chelsea Handler Reveals Which Celebrity Was Her "Worst Interview Ever"

25 January 2016 8:52 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Chelsea Handler's new Netflix docuseries, Chelsea Does, is streaming now, and the former E! talk-show host promoted the new project at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend. During an interview with Variety on Saturday, the 40-year-old comedian was asked to reveal the worst celebrity guest she ever had on Chelsea Lately, and it wasn't long before she was able to decide on somebody: Justin Bieber. "Oh, there's so many," she responded before saying, "I mean, Justin Bieber maybe? 'Cause he was trying to flirt with me, and it was so uncomfortable." She went on: "Like, that's his schtick. He would come on and flirt with you, and you just felt like a child molester right away." Justin dropped by Chelsea Lately a handful of times during its seven-year run and laid on the charm pretty aggressively each time. When asked if any of his moves worked on her, »

Chelsea Handler’s Least Favorite Celebrity Interview Was With None Other Than Justin Bieber

25 January 2016 12:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

While promoting her new Netflix documentaries at Sundance this weekend, Chelsea Handler opened up to Variety about some of her best and worst Chelsea Lately experiences. As far as lows were concerned, the comedian called Justin Bieber out as her worst celebrity interviewee: "He was trying to flirt with me, and it was so uncomfortable," she told the trade. "That's his shtick, like he would come on and flirt with you, and you just felt like a child molester right away — and I was like, I don't want to feel that way." Makes sense. For reference, here's some clips-or-it-didn't-happen proof:In the words of the great DJ Khaled, Another one: Beliebe it or not, the good news is Handler is likely done with these pop-culture-centric E!-type interviews. After her four-part docuseries, she's staying with Netflix to do another late-night-ish, in-your-face talk show (lighter on the celebrity angle, though). Watch Handler's »

24 January 2016 9:40 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Justin Bieber can sing and dance and wear all kinds of different haircuts, but he's not Chelsea Handler's favorite interview. The Netflix star and former E! talk show host told Variety during the Sundance Film Festival that Bieber was perhaps her worst celebrity interview ever (though really, "there's so many, I can't decide," she said).

Chelsea Does Season 1 Review

21 January 2016 3:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

All four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

“I’m just trying to understand why people do this,” former late-night star slash no-filter comedian Chelsea Handler admits to a group of her friends all discussing the necessity – or lack thereof – of marriage. It’s this simple, pure motivation for answers and discovery that runs through all four episodes of Handler’s new “docu-series” Chelsea Does (in order of intended viewing: Marriage, Racism, Silicon Valley, and Drugs). The topics may be cherry-picked for the expected shock value that Handler is known for, but the cool thing about Chelsea Does is that anything that’s truly jaw-dropping doesn’t come out of her mouth, but the mouths of some of the people she interviews in the course of learning more about everything from Bdsm to the “truth” behind the Confederate cause in the Civil War.

That probably doesn’t exactly sound like »

Sex, Drugs and Hot-Button Docs: Chelsea Handler Does Netflix

20 January 2016 10:49 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Chelsea Handler has lost control, and not in the vodka-fueled manner one might expect from the former late-night queen. For her new Netflix documentary miniseries, Chelsea Does, the self-described "control freak" relinquished her power and let others take charge.

"It was a complete departure from anything I had ever done," she says. The New Jersey native had curated a self-deprecating, mean-party-girl image in a series of comedic memoirs (her 2005 book, My Horizontal Life, was the first of five she's penned to date) and eight years as a host on E! »

Chelsea Handler Fires Back: Lately's Heather McDonald 'Should Be Scared'

20 January 2016 8:09 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It turns out the only thing more uncomfortable than an episode of Chelsea Lately is life after the late E! talk show.

During a Sirius Xm interview on Tuesday, former host Chelsea Handler responded to Lately writer Heather McDonald‘s recent comments about Handler being a hellish boss. (“I lived in fear, 100 percent fear,” McDonald said. “I enjoyed my time there … but something could happen and my heart would be beating and I’d be like, ‘Is this it?'”) As you might expect, Handler did not mince words.

The Individualists: Chelsea Handler Gets Personal In Netflix Documentary Series

19 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Chelsea Handler is rebooting her career — and going global.

Chelsea Does,” a new four-part documentary series on Netflix, will introduce Handler to a worldwide audience that may not already know her from such previous work as her standup comedy, her books and her talkshow, “Chelsea Lately.” The series will make its bow at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

In each episode of “Chelsea Does,” Handler navigates through a hot topic: marriage, racism, Silicon Valley and drugs.  She talked about the value of forging her own path away from the E! celebrity talk show that made her a TV star, as part of a collaboration between the Autograph Collection’s “The Individualists” series and Variety.

You’ve taken a year off and are coming back in a big way on Netflix. Why did you decide to make your return with four hour-long documentaries?

I wanted to do something challenging, I was like, »

The 15 Netflix Original Series to be Excited About in 2016

17 January 2016 8:40 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Chelsea Does" What is it? "Chelsea Does" is a four-part Netflix Documentary Series featuring Chelsea Handler exploring four topics of personal and universal fascination: marriage, racism, Silicon Valley and drugs.  With her unique voice and provocative point of view, Chelsea will be seen confronting the topics that connect humanity, having the hard conversations about things that are not easy to talk about, and calibrating and learning who she is along the way. [official synopsis via Netflix] I'll like it if I like... when "Chelsea Lately" took itself (somewhat) seriously. Why should I care? Chelsea Handler has always had a unique voice, and now she's putting purpose behind it. That's not to say helming "Chelsea Lately" or guest starring on "Web Therapy" and "This Means War" wasn't important work, but in her investigative docu-series "Chelsea Does," Handler is exploring difficult universal concepts »
