"We start in a couple weeks. I hope NBC gets behind it. There's a lot of buzz. It's different and edgy. I haven't read [her books], but I've seen her a lot and it's going to be awesome. I am just starting to immerse myself in the Chelsea Handler of it all. She's an amazing woman," Prepon told E! News.

The That 70's Show star also thinks they'll make a good team, revealing: "I'm from Jersey, Chelsea and I are similar, so it's perfect we play sisters. It's funny, because her vodka is my favorite vodka too. We both drink the same thing!"

We can't wait to see the pilot!
