This summer, Yahoo will air Burning Love, a web series that’s a parody of The Bachelor, but what separates this one from those that have come before it is the pedigree of its actors. It’s hard to parody reality television, but these actors have done it before, starring in series that borrow reality television’s form and feel authentic despite being fictional.
They come from outstanding comedy series, such as Parks & Recreation (Adam Scott), Party Down (Ken Marino, Adam Scott, Kristen Bell), and highly underrated reality parody The Comeback (Malin Akerman). The series debuts June 4, and is produced by Ben Stiller and others; written by Erica Oyama; and directed by its star, Ken Marino. But just watch the trailer:
