Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Jay Leno, Jenny McCarthy, Sharon Osbourne, Dave Grohl, Jane Fonda and James Van Der Beek to Appear in the New Season of "After Lately"

(Los Angeles, CA, November 9, 2011) - They've laughed, they've cried, they've cowered, they've begged and they've been humiliated, yet still, Chelsea Handler's rambunctious late-night staffers are opening their office doors once again for the second season of E!'s hit series, "After Lately." The show brings cameras behind-the-scenes of the inane work environment of "Chelsea Lately," helmed by the Queen of late-night herself, and takes viewers on a wild, often bumpy and always hilarious ride through the makings of late night's most unconventional talk show. Packed with A-list celebrity guests, including Jennifer Aniston, Jay Leno, Reese Witherspoon, Jenny McCarthy, Dave Grohl, Sharon Osbourne, Jane Fonda and many more, the new season promises to deliver more laughs, more screams and more uncomfortable moments than ever before. The second season of "After Lately" premieres on November 27th at 11 PM only on E!

For the staff, the stress of pumping out a new episode of "Chelsea Lately" every evening is the easy part; it's when the show signs off each night that Chelsea's employees are just getting started. Her loyal subjects include her beloved, diminutive partner-in-crime, Chuy Bravo; the pasty-white and always inappropriate, Brad Wollack; the acerbic Sarah Colonna; the skirt-chasing, big-toothed Chris Franjola; the desperate to be famous Heather McDonald; the soft-spoken and often abused runt of the litter Jeff "Jiffy" Wild; the sports loving, frat boy next-door Josh Wolf; the lovingly neurotic Jen Kirkman; and the always hungry Steve "Marmaljew" Marmalstein.

In addition to the show's witty cast of characters, the upcoming season is packing some major Hollywood star power when many of Chelsea's famous friends pop by the "Chelsea Lately" offices to the delight - or dismay - of the crew. Sharon Osbourne and Jiffy come to blows over an email; gal pal Jennifer Aniston tries to stay out of the middle when the staffers keep a secret from Chelsea; Dave Grohl gets spooked when he thinks someone in the office is twitter-stalking him; Chris Franjola and James Van Der Beek have a fashion throw-down; and Reese Witherspoon is back again - but this time the tables have turned. Also making an appearance on the series is Jay Leno, who plays tough with Josh Wolf.

In the season premiere, Brad puts his foot in his mouth (again), and unwittingly insults a woman with Autism at a book signing. Through a chain of events, the news of the insult spreads like wildfire and gets back to Chelsea and her good friend and Autism advocate, Jenny McCarthy, both of whom are outraged by Brad's idiocy. Meanwhile, Franjola has a blind date and finds out that the gorgeous woman he's out to dinner with, and is lusting after... might just be his daughter. In true fashion, Chelsea is there to ridicule him each step of the way.

"After Lately's" second season is packed with more humor and more celebrities than ever before and begins on November 27th at 11:00 PM only on E!

"After Lately" is Executive Produced by Chelsea Handler, Tom Brunelle and Jay Karas. Brad Wollack and Johnny Milord serve as Co-Executive Producers. "After Lately" is produced by Borderline Amazing Productions.
