We are never going to be rid of Chelsea Handler, are we? To some that probably isn't a bad thing; others could probably remove her from their lives right now and be perfectly happy. I am somewhere in the middle - I don't see her enough to hate her and sometimes she seems funny.
ABC apparently likes the cut of her jib, as it has given a script order to Discounted, a new comedy that will be produced, written and star Fortune Feimster, a comedian who often appears on Chelsea Lately.
The show will focus on two half-sisters who are trying to keep their North Carolina furniture store above water. An IKEA-type chain from The Netherlands challenges them. Feimster will play one of the two sisters. Handler will also be executive producing, with Tom Brunelle and Brad Wollack via their Borderline Amazing company.
"I love working for Chelsea and she's someone I'd like to be working with for a long time," North Carolina said Feimster. "Teaming up with her production company for this project seemed like a perfect fit. They already know my comedic sensibilities and luckily my sense of humor goes really well with theirs. Plus, nobody knows how to dress me up in a more ridiculous costume than Chelsea does!"
