Los Angeles, Feb 25 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Chelsea Handler is working to come out with a pilot show based on her autobiography; “Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea.”

The talk-show star would not be playing herself in the show because her character in the autobiography is much younger. Chelsea would be played by Laura Prepon while Chelsea plays the older sister. Chelsea hopes that the show would be ordered by NBC after the pilot.

Prepon told reporters that the production of the show is some two weeks away. Prepon believes that she has a lot of connection with Chelsea. She revealed some similarities between the two of them.

During an interview with E! Prepon said that, “I’m from Jersey. Chelsea and I are similar, so it’s perfect we play sisters. It’s funny, because her vodka is my favorite vodka, too. We both drink the same thing!”

She said that she wouldn’t have any problem at all playing the younger sister of Chelsea on the show.

Chelsea’s late night show on E!, “Chelsea Lately” has proved to be hugely successful with descent ratings for adults who stay wake late in the night to enjoy it.
