Chelsea Handler titled one of her best-selling books "My Horizontal Life," but her career tends to rocket vertically, straight through the roof.
The latest break for the salty-tongued late-night talk show host is a so-called "semi-scripted" series for E!, the same network that already airs her gab fest, "Chelsea Lately."
For the new series, Handler will have the easiest of commutes: it will focus on the backstage hilarity involved with producing her current show. The new one, "After Lately," is a half-hour comedy. The network has asked for eight initial episodes though it's still uncertain when it will debut.
