E! ENTERTAINMENT AND CHELSEA HANDLER ANNOUNCE COMPREHENSIVE NEW MULTI-YEAR PARTNERSHIP

Chelsea Handler Continues as Host and Executive Producer of E!'s Popular Late Night Talk Show "Chelsea Lately" Through 2014

Los Angeles, CA, November 15, 2011 - E! Entertainment and Chelsea Handler have forged a new multi-year deal that continues the comedienne and best-selling author's role as host and executive producer of the network's popular late night series "Chelsea Lately" through 2014. As part of the agreement, Handler will also develop and produce shows for E! and NBCUniversal via her production company, Borderline Amazing Productions, in addition to "After Lately," which returns for its second season November 27.

"Chelsea Lately," which launched in July 2007, reigns as the highest-rated and most-watched late night talk show with Women 18-34, out-performing shows including "The Tonight Show," "The Late Show with David Letterman," "Jimmy Kimmel," "Conan," "Jimmy Fallon," "The Daily Show" and "Colbert Report." The series recently delivered its highest rated and most-watched telecast ever on October 10 at 11pm averaging nearly 1.8 million total viewers.

"Chelsea is an extraordinary talent whose smart, clever, no-holds-barred point of view has clearly been embraced by viewers," said Suzanne Kolb, President, E! "We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Chelsea as we build on the success of 'Chelsea Lately,' which has become the late night destination for young adults, and collaborate with Borderline Amazing Productions on developing even more hit shows."

"It's a great time for women in comedy, and it's a great time to have real breasts," added Chelsea Handler.

Under the new deal, E! and NBCUniversal obtain "first look" rights to all Borderline Amazing Productions projects and she will continue as host of "Chelsea Lately" through 2014. Handler, along with her partner in Borderline Amazing Productions, Tom Brunelle, will continue to serve as executive producers for "Chelsea Lately" and "After Lately."

As one of today's most successful comediennes, Handler has captured a legion of fans and continues to perform stand-up to sold-out crowds across the country. Handler has also seen tremendous success as an author with her popular books "Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea," "Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang" and "Lies Chelsea Handler Told Me" debuting at #1 on the New York Times bestsellers' lists. Her first book, entitled "My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One Night Stands," has sold over a million copies worldwide.

Recently named one of Glamour Magazine's 2011 "Women of the Year", Chelsea is a permanent fixture in pop culture as she continues to build a multiplatform media empire. Going in front of and behind the camera on yet another TV project, Chelsea is currently shooting a new scripted series for NBC "Are You There, Chelsea?" as both an executive producer and a recurring guest star. In 2011, Chelsea had her first feature film role with a cameo in Universal Pictures' "HOP" opposite Russell Brand and James Marsden. In 2012, she will star in two studio films - the first in February opposite Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine in Fox's "This Means War," and the second in October for Paramount Picture's comedy "Fun Size."
