A report that Dave Chappelle might be heading back to the small screen is "absolutely untrue," Carla Simms, Chappelle's rep, tells Entertainment Weekly.
The online paper The Daily reported earlier Thursday that he planned a new show aimed for a paid subscription service like Netflix, Crackle or Hulu. But Entertainment Weekly also quotes sources close to the comedian as saying he would likely go on a bigger platform than a niche subscription service if he did return to television.
