Hope Laura Prepon is brushing up on her cocktail humor.

The former That 70's Show star, 30, is set to play comedienne Chelsea Handler in a new NBC comedy, Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea, based on the late night host's best-selling book.

The actress, who also starred in ABC's short-lived drama, October Road, will star in the pilot as a young Handler -- a single cocktail waitress who talks about her love of sex and alcohol -- Deadline reports.

Prepon has spoken to in the past about the possibilities of returning to TV.

"I'm trying to figure out if I want to go back on TV or not," she has said. "So I'm looking at some stuff, but it has to be perfect."
