Chelsea Handler NBC sitcom dumps cast members


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Chelsea Handler’s new sitcom based on one of her autobiographical books titled “Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea,” needed a little more tinkering in the cast department before being ready to air.

Key members of the show’s ensemble, which was being constructed around leading lady Laura Prepon (“That ‘70s Show”), were let go, including Natalie Morales (“White Collar”), Angel Laketa Moore (E.R.”) and Jo Koy, a regular on Handler’s talk show “Chelsea Lately.”

A spokesperson for the show confirmed to TVLine that the trio “would not be moving forward with the series for creative reasons” and that their characters “are currently being reconceived.”

“Vodka” is going to be a midseason replacement for NBC. Morales was going to play Chelsea’s best friend. Back to the drawing board.

Here’s a preview NBC had cooked up with the now-defunct cast (and a cameo by Handler, herself):
