Streaming video company Netflix has signed a deal with comedian Chelsea Handler to create an all-new talk show that will debut in early 2016, the company said today.
Netflix said the show would be available simultaneously for members to watch whenever they like.
This is the latest original content deal signed by Netflix, which has had success with other series like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.
The deal also means that Handler will create other specials exclusively for Netflix.
"I wanted to sit with the cool kids at lunch, so I approached Netflix to make sure they were as cool as I thought they were, and when I confirmed my suspicions, like with any other future lover, I made my move," Handler said in a statement.
The terms of the partnership were not disclosed. (Reuters)
