Netflix Gets Chelsea Handler; Italia Ricci Joins Supergirl as Silver Banshee

Chelsea Does

Chelsea Handler's Netflix Documentary Series, Chelsea Does, will make its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival on Friday, January 22 and launch exclusively to Netflix members worldwide on Saturday, January 23. Directed by Oscar and Emmy-nominated Eddie Schmidt (This Film Is Not Yet Rated, Valentine Road) and executive produced by Schmidt, Handler and Oscar award-winning Morgan Neville (20 Feet From Stardom, Best of Enemies), Chelsea Does is comprised of four revealing, funny and introspective films (Chelsea Does Marriage, Chelsea Does Racism, Chelsea Does Silicon Valley, Chelsea Does Drugs) featuring Handler exploring topics of personal and universal fascination, from marriage to drugs, to racism and Silicon Valley. With her unique voice and provocative point of view, Chelsea will be seen confronting the topics that connect humanity, having the hard conversations about things that are not easy to talk about, and calibrating and learning who she is along the way.


Italia Ricci

The former star of Chasing Life just got super powers. Italia Ricci joins the cast of Supergirl early next year as Siobhan Smythe, better known as the wicked Silver Banshee. At first, Smythe will work at CatCo, threatening Kara's role as Cat's go-to gal. But, over time, Smythe becomes an even greater adversary as she transforms into a hypersonic screecher who terrorizes National City. Along with her lethal wails, Silver Banshee has the ability to travel through sound waves.

Ricci - known for her work on Chasing Life, Unnatural History, and Secret Girlfriend - joins actors Henry Czerny (Winslow Schott, aka Toyman) and Chris Vance (Non) in the list of the show's incredible guest stars. Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg said he couldn't be more thrilled to welcome Ricci to Supergirl.
