Netflix said the show will become available simultaneously for
members to watch whenever they like.
This is the latest original content deal signed by Netflix,
which has had success with other series like "House of Cards"
and "Orange is the New Black."
The deal also means that Handler, whose show was previously on
Comcast Corp unit NBCUniversal's E! Network cable channel, will
create other specials exclusively for Netflix.
"I wanted to sit with the cool kids at lunch, so I approached
Netflix to make sure they were as cool as I thought they were,
and when I confirmed my suspicions, like with any other future
lover, I made my move," Handler said in a statement.
The terms of the partnership were not disclosed.
