Chelsea Handler and her writers set to get even more TV time on E! with “After Lately”

Chelsea Handler continues to be the gift who keeps on giving for her writing staff on E!'s Chelsea Lately, as the network has ordered eight episodes of an improvised half-hour called After Lately, to air after Handler's current late-night talker.

Variety got the scoop on E! on this one. Handler told the trade paper that the show will be set behind-the-scenes of the actual talk show, starring her writers. Or she said: "A perfect platform for people who have no business being on camera." And yet. There we have it. So, expect to see her staffers Guy Branum, Sarah Colonna, Heather McDonald, Chris Franjola and Brad Wollack spending more time on your E! channel.
