Laura Prepon To Play 20-Something Chelsea Handler In NBC Comedy Pilot

EXCLUSIVE: Former That 70's Show star Laura Prepon will channel racy comedienne Chelsea Handler in Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea, a multicamera comedy for NBC inspired by latenight star's autobiographical book of the same name about her life in her 20s. Prepon has landed the lead in the pilot, written and executive produced by Dharma & Greg co-creator Dottie Zicklin and Julie Larson and executive produced by Handler.

It centers on Chelsea Hanson (Prepon), a fresh-faced single cocktail waitress highly opinionated and open about her love to drink and have sex. Vodka, which hails from Warner Bros. TV and Werner Entertainment, marks a return to the multicamera comedy genre for Prepon, who got her break playing witty and confident teenager Donna Pinciotti on the Fox sitcom That '70s Show.

After the end of the show in 2006, the actress, repped by Gersh and New Wave, co-starred on the ABC drama October Road and has done guest stints on several series, including an arc on CBS' How I Met Your Mother.

Hmm...I like Prepon well enough, but I'm just not sure about this...

I like Laura too, but she does seem to be and odd choice for this role. I don't know how much hope I have for this show anyway, being that it's going to be on NBC. Doesn't seem like a good fit for a sitcom based on, of all people, Chelsea Handler and the antics in her book. I think it would be much better suited on cable.

^ Agreed. It already has a strike against it that it's not on cable where it could be raunchier.
