When we spoke to Handler for Fast Company's May cover story, she said the talk show—which streams new episodes on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays—would be a hodgepodge of topical discussions, special guests, and documentary-style vignettes.
From our profile:
[Chelsea] will feature interviews with a variety of guests about often touchy topics: "abortion, parenthood, the electoral college . . ." she says, by way of examples, plus a regular dose of Handler's bawdy, transgressive humor. It will feature taped field reports—mini versions of the four hour-plus Chelsea Does documentaries that debuted on Netflix back in January. There will be a live audience and lots of wild-card elements; earlier in the day, Handler held auditions for a child correspondent ("I'm looking for a 10-year-old with attitude," she says).
