If you felt amazingly satisfied after watching Funny Or Die’s parody of The Bachelor starring David Spade — I know I did — you are going to mess your pants now. Ken Marino, he of Wet Hot American Summer, The State and many a comedy nerd girl’s sexual fantasies, will star in a new Web show titled Burning Love, which will premiere on Yahoo! Screen’s Comedy Channel June 4. Marino’s wife Erica Oyama (Childrens Hospital) wrote the show while Marino directs.
The faux reality show finds Marino as hunky firefighter Mark Orlando who is looking for true love amongst a gaggle of very needy women– and who isn’t afraid to say exactly what he’s thinking. Starring alongside Marino will be Michael Ian Black, Community‘s Ken Jeong, The State and Reno 911!‘s Kerri Kenney, Kristen Bell, Malin Akerman, Parks and Recreation‘s Adam Scott, along with his former Party Down co-star Ryan Hansen; and though I don’t know the extent of her role (she’s one of the contestants), I did see Natasha Leggero in the trailer. Oh, and a real former Bachelor, Jake Pavelka also makes an appearance in the series. Marino also promises some stellar guest stars. I’m thinking David Wain and Michael Showalter, at the very least, will drop in.
