Chelsea Handler’s new talk show premieres on Netflix on Wednesday 11th May – and it’s anybody’s guess what’s in store.
Promising to “free the talk show”, the series – cunningly titled “Chelsea” – marks a big departure for the time-honoured talk show format, but also a big shift from what Netflix traditionally does. Episodes of Chelsea will be released three times a week (Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays), with pre-recorded segments out in the world, other bits recorded in front of a studio audience and goodness knows what else. It’s live. It’s not live. It’s released worldwide. And it’s released at eight in the morning, that classic prime time slot for watching talk shows.
What we do know is who will be on each episode this week. Here’s the guest line up for the first three episodes:
Episode 1 – Wednesday 11th May
Chelsea created this talk show to get the college education she never had, so for her series opener, she’s tackling the topic of education with guests Drew Barrymore, Pitbull and U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King. The episode will close with a special Netflix University segment.
Episode 2 – Thursday 12th May
Chelsea’s live in-studio guests include Gwyneth Paltrow, Tony Hale, and TEDTalk’s Chris Anderson. She will also travel south of the border to explore the world of Telenovelas in Mexico.
Episode 3 – Friday 13th May
Welcome to ChelseaCon. Comic book expert Amy Dallen gives Chelsea a primer on the Marvel Universe, before the cast of Captain America: Civil War – Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, and Frank Grillo – take on their biggest challenge yet: dinner at Chelsea’s.
Here’s the trailer:
Chelsea arrives on Netflix worldwide at 8am BST every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, from 11th May.
