The late-night comedian said earlier in March this year that she was not so happy with the E! and her contract is to expire in December 2014. She also hinted then to be working for the Netflix after ending the deal.

A report published in the New York Post this year in April wrote Handler has signed a deal with Netflix. Now, Netflix itself has confirmed it officially.

In a released statement Handler said she need to do something outside the box in order to keep herself interested. She also wants to sit with cool kids at lunch and so approached Netflix to ensure they too are cool as her and the requirements. She added further that she is excited to move forward with Netflix.

It is reported the new deal will begin with a standup comedy special which will be based on her present tour ‘Uganda Be Kidding Me.’ It will be taped on Friday in Chicago and Netflix will be releasing it on October 10. However, the new “docu-comedy specials” is to be created next year.
