Dailies | Chelsea Handler Handles Racism in New ‘Chelsea Does’ Trailer (Video)

“I just want to live in a place where a person of every color is able to hit on me,” Handler jokes in new preview of Netflix series

Chelsea Handler tackles racism with her trademark (lack of) sensitivity in a new trailer for her Netflix series “Chelsea Does.”

Handler takes on all sides in the issue, which includes asking two black residents of South Carolina — the state she claims is leading the nation in police brutality — if they ever think “F–k these white people already.” She also asks Rev. Al Sharpton “Is that offensive to you, that black people love watermelon and fried chicken?”

“I just want to live in a place where a person of every color is able to hit on me,” Handler also says at one point in the trailer.

The four-part series, which will premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 22 and then start streaming on Netflix the following day, features the comedian investigating a different topic in each episode: marriage, racism, Silicon Valley and drugs.

“Chelsea Does” is directed by Eddie Schmidt (“This Film Is Not Yet Rated,” “Valentine Road”). Schmidt, Handler and Morgan Neville (“20 Feet From Stardom,” “Best of Enemies”) serve as executive producers.

“Chelsea Does” premieres Jan. 23 on Netflix.
