Inspired by the best-selling book from comedienne/talk show host Chelsea Handler, the sitcom “Are You There, Chelsea?” follows the exploits of twentysomething bartender Chelsea (Laura Prepon) a strong-willed force of nature who is determined to live life to the fullest and make no apologies.
Her friends are along for the ride but they all know it is Chelsea’s way or the highway. Mark is a charming bartender whose wit makes him the perfect foil for Chelsea while Shoniqua is a smart and sassy fellow waitress who looks out for Chelsea’s best interests.
Close friend and fellow bartender Todd has a wry sense of humor that keeps her in check. Also starring are Natalie Morales as Ivory, Chelsea’s feisty best friend; Lauren Lapkus as Dee Dee, Chelsea’s sheltered, shy roommate, and Lenny Clarke as Chelsea’s dad, Melvin.
Handler has a recurring role as Chelsea’s sister Sloane, a happily married new mom who has little in common with her carefree sister.
Original working title was “Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea,”
