"Trying to bring you guys some laughter and joy! #ChelseaHandlerProduction," she tweeted.

Deadline said Blair and Wiped Out were both developed at Universal Television, where Handler has a first-look deal.

Blair is based on the Mo Welch comic strip. Welch created and wrote the series, which follows a 20-something with a dark but frank outlook on life who is forced to move back in with her mom.

Wiped Out will feature Claudia Lonow as showrunner. The series centers on a narcissistic woman who tries to rebuild her "perfect" life after she is suddenly erased from the world's collective memory during a rift in reality.

Handler will executive produce both series with Molly Burke and Rachel Polan.

Handler is a comedian, actress and television personality who hosted the E! series Chelsea Lately and the Netflix talk show Chelsea. She will make her return to stand-up comedy in a new HBO Max special.
