STAGE TUBE: Chelsea Handler Discusses Her Guest Star Appearance on Tonight's WHITNEY on NBC
On tonight's episode of NBC's WHITNEY, Chelsea Handler guest stars. In the show, Liz is excited for her upcoming nuptials, and asks Whitney (Whitney Cummings) to be her maid of honor and plan an engagement party for her and her fiancé, Neal (Maulik Pancholy). All the party planning stresses Whitney out causing sleepless nights, so Alex (Chris D'Elia) suggests that she go see her therapist, Dr. Price (Chelsea Handler) for some help - but a prescribed solution causes even more mayhem. Meanwhile, Roxanne (Rhea Seehorn) decides to take charge of her potential future and finds an unlikely support system in Mark (Dan O'Brien).
NBC's new multi-camera comedy "Whitney" is a hilarious look at modern day love, which centers around Whitney (Whitney Cummings, "Chelsea Lately") and Alex (Chris D'Elia, "Glory Daze"), a happily unmarried couple. Together for three years, the duo is in no rush to get hitched, which seems to get a mixed response from their friends.
Whitney's close circle of girlfriends includes on one side: Lily (Zoe Lister-Jones, "The Other Guys"), a romantic idealist who loves being in love, and on the other: Roxanne (Rhea Seehorn, "The Starter Wife"), a recent divorcee who is practical, cynical, and dreading being single again. Lily and Roxanne's opposing points of view only exacerbate Whitney's own complicated outlook on relationships.
Completing their close-knit group is Neal (Maulik Pancholy, NBC's "30 Rock"), a real modern day Renaissance man - sensitive, cool and knows a little bit about everything and happens to be dating Lily. On the other end of the spectrum is Whitney and Alex's next-door neighbor Mark (Dan O'Brien, "How I Met Your Mother"), a police officer and total bachelor, who claims to be the ultimate player, but likes to talk a good game.
At the end of the day, Whitney and Alex try to have a relationship on their own terms - in a world that expects a more traditional approach.
