FROM THE HILARIOUS MIND OF CHELSEA HANDLER COMES AN INTIMATE LOOK AT THE RIDICULOUS LIVES OF HER INNER CIRCLE WHEN "AFTER LATELY" PREMIERES MARCH 6

Inner Workings of the Comedienne's Hit Late Night Talk Show "Chelsea Lately" Revealed in E!'s First-Ever "Mocku-Series," Premiering Sunday, March 6 at 11:00PM ET/PT on E!

Los Angeles, March 1, 2011 - Throughout television history, there have been shows about workplaces and even shows that take viewers behind-the-scenes of fictional shows. However, there has never been a show featuring the actual staff of a real late night comedy series... until now. "After Lately" gives viewers a hilarious peek at the always unpredictable people and often ridiculous events behind the making of late night television's most unconventional talk show. The new eight-episode half-hour mocku-series "After Lately" premieres Sunday, March 6 at 11:00pm ET/PT only on E!

Getting the popular late night series "Chelsea Lately" on the air five nights a week takes a phalanx of comedians, led by Handler, along with the show's team of writers, producers, editors and other staffers. From writing jokes to booking celebrities to developing sketch ideas, the staff is hard at work nearly 24/7. While producing a nightly show is tough, it's keeping on Handler's good side - and avoiding her notorious practical jokes and unsolicited meddling into their personal lives - that proves to be even tougher. With Handler as the boss, this office is anything but all work and no play and the staff of "Chelsea Lately" will do whatever it takes to keep pace with Handler. The cast of characters includes: her trusty sidekick Chuy Bravo; the slutty and sarcastic Sarah Colonna; the red-headed and uber-abused Brad Wollack; playboy comedian Chris Franjola; the will-do-anything-to-be-famous Heather McDonald; the awkwardly Awkward Jeff Wild; the malnourished hipster Johnny Kansas; the bagel-loving Steve Marmalstein; and Chelsea's older live-in brother, Roy.

Comedic to the core, this all-new mocku-series fully exploits the personas and general absurdities existing in and around this late night TV phenomenon. Each episode draws upon the entirely ridiculous - yet absolutely, positively, without-a-doubt "possibly" real - stories, events and people which make up the world of "Chelsea Lately." In addition to the regular cast, "After Lately" storylines will utilize a handful of Handler's big-time celebrity friends, other popular roundtable mainstays and additional staff members... whether they like or not.

In the premiere episode "The List," the staff starts to resemble the cast of "Lord of the Flies" when chaos and backstabbing ensue all in the hopes of securing a seat on Handler's private plane to Cabo for the weekend. Friends turn into foes, groveling hits a biblical proportion and backdoor side deals are all in the works to land one of the last two coveted seats. All the while Handler basks in the glory of the deplorable lengths these people will sink to in the name of a free trip to Mexico. Additionally, several members of the staff reveal their true colors when a co-worker brings her child to work.

"After Lately" is Executive Produced by Chelsea Handler and Tom Brunelle, with Jay Karas and Brad Wollack serving as Co-Executive Producers and Johnny Milord as Supervising Producer, in association with Borderline Amazing Productions.

The irreverent one-of-a-kind new series, "After Lately," premieres Sunday, March 6 at 11:00pm ET/PT only on E!
