Chelsea Handler is back on Wednesday with her new self-named Netflix series, which will run three days a week. Though she has a pretty sweet in-studio desk, the meat of the show mostly takes place on location within her travels.
A new trailer that dropped Monday showcases some of the best stuff — watch the video above.
Here’s how the streaming service describes the teaser: In just 90 seconds, you see Chelsea boldly carrying a Donald Trump piñata through Mexico City, receiving some hard news from a polygamist that she’s not exactly fourth-wife material and training with no-nonsense Russian athletes, including Maria Sharapova.
“Chelsea,” Netflix’s first-ever talk show, will post new episodes Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 12:01 a.m. PT.
Here’s the lineup for Handler’s premiere week, with loglines in Netflix’s own words:
Wednesday, May 11 (#1001) Chelsea created this talk show to get the college education she never had, so for her series opener, she’s tackling the topic of education with guests Drew Barrymore, Pitbull and U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King. The episode will close with a special Netflix University segment.
Thursday, May 12 (#1002) Chelsea’s live in-studio guests include Gwyneth Paltrow, Tony Hale, and TEDTalk’s Chris Anderson. She will also travel south of the border to explore the world of Telenovelas in Mexico.
Friday, May 13 (#1003) Welcome to ChelseaCon. Comic book expert Amy Dallen gives Chelsea a primer on the Marvel Universe, before the cast of “Captain America: Civil War” – Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Emily VanCamp, and Frank Grillo – take on their biggest challenge yet: dinner at Chelsea’s!
