Chelsea Handler has finally revealed some details surrounding her much-anticipated new talk show for Netflix.

In a handwritten note to herself posted to the comedian's social-media accounts, Handler said that the still-untitled show will post 30-minute episodes on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday starting May 11.

"This is your new show schedule," she wrote, "so if you're thinking about having a baby - don't."

The show will have a travel component and will involve interviews with "respected public figures." She shared her top three dream guests: Michelle Obama, the Pope, and Arnold Schwarzenegger's maid.

Once posted, the episodes will be permanently available to stream by Netflix members in at least 190 countries.


"So, remember to keep a deeper, more culturally sensitive perspective," she wrote, "especially toward the Germans. They're still touchy about everything they did."

Handler ended her E! talk show, "Chelsea Lately," in August 2014 after inking a multi-layered deal with Netflix. It included a stand-up special, a documentary series, and the streaming company's first talk show.

"You wanted a new show, you got it," she said in the note. "You wanted to be on Netflix, you are. You wanted to spread your wings, now fly, b---h."

As for the show's title, Handler is taking suggestions from fans:



 The comedian has been very clear that she wants to take on more serious topics, instead of just pure pop-culture and celebrity fodder as she did on E!'s "Chelsea Lately."

"If I was going to continue working in this industry, I knew I had to do something outside the box to keep myself interested," Handler previously said of the Netflix deal.
