New Season of Web Series ‘Burning Love’ Features More Familiar Faces, Paul Rudd Cameo
The Ben Stiller-produced web series Burning Love returns for a second season of Bachelor-style parody. In the first season there was a bachelor played by Ken Marino (who returns as Exec Producer and director of the new first episode of the new season). This season, the genders are turned with a bachelorette played by returning actress June Diane Raphael (Year One).
The new season’s format provides an opportunity for many familiar faces to partake as the bachelors who are competing to win the heart of Raphael’s character. The cast pulls heavily from Marino and Stiller’s buddies, including Adam Scott (reprising his role from the first season), Michael Cera, Jo Lo Truglio, Colin Hanks, Martin Starr, Jerry O’Connell, Adam Brody, Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer, Ryan Hansen, and Nick Kroll. Michael Ian Black returns as the host of the show. In the first episode, Paul Rudd is revealed as a participant in a previous season. Fans of the defunct TV series Party Down will note that nearly all of the cast members have now participated in Burning Love.
The first season of Burning Love will be airing on the E! network starting on February 25. A third season featuring cast from the first two seasons will also air later this year.
Preview Season 2 of Burning Love:
This season on Burning Love, it’s Damaged Darlin’ Julie’s (June Diane Raphael) turn to find her soul mate. After Mark broke her heart, Carly was there to pick up the pieces. It was a wonderful experience in the end, Julie realized she is not a lesbian, she’s not even bi-sexual. She’s not entirely sure how she ended up with a woman, it was probably just because she liked the attention.
Now, she’s ready to settle down with one of 16 eligible bachelors. These men have come from all over the country. Some are personal trainers, some are not. But they all want screen time and to make a good impression on Julie.
