Leave it to Chelsea Handler to announce the premiere date for her new still-untitled Netflix talk show in her own way. This morning she posted a hand-written memo to herself about the new show that happened to conclude with, “PREMIERES MAY 11TH” in all caps and underlined.

Other details: the 30-minute show will stream every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with no commercials. Here’s her memo:

What has not been decided yet is a title. Handler has taken to social media to ask for suggestions, and she and Netflix will unveil the name tomorrow in a Twitter chat on her page.

The news comes after a long gestation period for the new show after she inked with Netflix in July and exited E! with her last Chelsea Lately show in August 2014 after seven years. Former The View executive producer Bill Wolff is EP of the new talk show, which is being produced in Los Angeles and will reflect Handler’s unfiltered opinions on topical entertainment and cultural issues, as well as guest interviews.

Handler’s landmark deal with Netflix also included a stand-up special and four docu-comedy specials, the latter of which kicked off in January with Chelsea Does.
