Long after CHELSEA LATELY has been shot, the audience has left and the studio is dark, new series AFTER LATELY keeps the cameras rolling as it delves into the ridiculous world of the people who make up this hit talk show.
Airing Sundays at 11 p.m. ET beginning March 6 on E!, the tongue-in-cheek 30-minute mocku-series, also starring Chelsea’s side-kick Chuy Bravo, draws upon the entirely absurd – yet absolutely real – stories encompassing the world of Chelsea (visit eonline.ca to confirm local listings).
Also, joining E!’s Sunday night lineup this March are new series WHAT’S EATING YOU (March 13 at 8 p.m. ET), which brings viewers into the often misunderstood and frightening world of eating disorders, followed by back-to-back episodes of PRETTY WILD (March 20 at 9 p.m. ET and 9:30 p.m. ET) which delves into the world of the sexy Neiers sisters.

Throughout television history, there have been shows about workplaces and shows that take viewers behind-the-scenes of hilarious, fictional television shows. However, there has never been a series showcasing the actual staff of a real, ongoing late night comedy series…until now. Getting the popular late night series CHELSEA LATELY on the air five nights a week takes a phalanx of comedians. 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.
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,” chaos and backstabbing ensue when the cast fight to secure 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.
