That '70s Show and How I Met Your Mother star Laura Prepon has signed onto play Chelsea Handler's alter ego in NBC's series adaptation of the comedian's best selling novel Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea.

The pilot will center on the slightly named-altered Chelsea Hanson, a free spirited cocktail waitress who loves alcohol and one-night stands. The series will be a multi-camera sitcom that will delve into the truth behind some of Chelsea Handler's more racy real-life exploits.

Dharma & Greg co-creator Dottie Zicklin and Julie Ann Larson have written and will produce the pilot episode. Chelsea Handler will be serving as an executive-producer and story consultant.
