Why We Love Chelsea Handler and After Lately

Can't get enough of Chelsea Handler? We can't either!

Funny girl Chelsea stars in After Lately, a new scripted comedy series on E!

When Chelsea Lately signs off each night, her gaggle of lunatic staffers is just getting started. And now there are behind the scenes cameras backstage capturing every moment.

“The show is a behind-the-scenes look at what happens at our office when the cameras are off,” Chelsea tells Hollyscoop.

Chelsea's right hand woman and Chelsea Lately writer Heather McDonald adds, "'After Lately' is about us, the writers working on 'Chelsea Lately'. It is shot much like 'The Office' but also like '30 Rock' in that we work on a comedy show. What is cool is that we are playing ourselves and the situations portrayed really happened to us over the years."

So what makes After Lately different than Chelsea Lately? "It's different in that I get more face time, so that's positive -- well, at least for me it's positive. People are always wondering -- and asking us -- what it's like to work at 'Chelsea Lately' and now they'll get an in-depth perspective on that. In truth, we may see the amount of incoming resumes reduced," adds Brad Wollack.

Don't expect to see the cast unfold their personal life on the show. "Happily it mostly takes place in our offices because I don't know if anyone should be subjected to the inside of Sarah Colonna'a sad apartment," says Chris Franjola.

Will we see Jennifer Aniston make an appearance on the show? Sarah Colonna says, "We have some great cameos. Academy Award winners! People were great sports, that's all I can say for now."

I'm already sold on the hilarious new show. Catch super-new episodes of Chelsea Lately Sundays at 11/10c.
