Netflix announced a number of renewals this week.
Chelsea will return for a second season in 2017 along with Lady Dynamite and Real Rob.
Chelsea Handler is back with a freshly stamped passport and new global outlook as she tackles today’s tough issues with the same acerbic wit and fearless curiosity you know and love. Join her as she travels around the world – from Russia, Japan, and Mexico City, across the U.S. and back again, to explore the subjects that matter most to you. Chelsea features celebrities, dignitaries, and surprise guests engaging in thought-provoking, yet hilarious conversations about topics like international cultures, alternative lifestyles, education, health, sports, parenting, politics, and more. Season 1 of Chelsea is currently streaming three times a week exclusively on Netflix.
Lady Dynamite is a single-camera comedy series based on what actor/comedian Maria Bamford has accepted to be “her life.” The occasionally surreal episodes, refracted across multiple time periods inspired by Bamford’s life, tell the story of a woman who loses- and then finds- her s**t. Lady Dynamite also stars Fred Melamed as Bamford’s manager and close friend Bruce Ben-Bacharach, and Mary Kay Place plays Bamford’s mother. Guest stars include Patton Oswalt, Ana Gasteyer, Jon Cryer, Mira Sorvino, Brandon Routh, June Diane Raphael, Adam Pally, Dean Cain, Sarah Silverman, Tig Notaro and Jenny Slate. Pam Brady, Mitch Hurwitz and Maria Bamford are executive producers on the Netflix production.
Rob Schneider’s comedy series, Real Rob, is an exaggerated yet brutally honest depiction of the comedian’s real life, interspersed with his stand-up comedy performances. Managing the ups and downs of a Hollywood career and it’s celebrity treatment (with his younger Mexican wife, a new baby, an ever-present stalker and a completely incompetent assistant), this comedy series is as close to the bone’ real life of the internationally famous comedian. The 8-episode second season, now a Netflix original series, stars and is produced and directed by Schneider. Patricia Schneider and Jamie Lissow also appear in the series.
