If you have ever seen a few minutes of “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette” — and if you have even a little bit of a sense of humor — you really need to watch “Burning Love.” The web series will return for its second season of dating absurdity on Feb. 14 (Valentine’s Day, of course), but you can watch a trailer for it now.
Back in season 1, “Burning Love” chronicled the efforts of Mark Orlando (Ken Marino of “Children’s Hospital” and “Party Down”) as he tried to find the love of his life from a group of strangers. Mark’s journey is now over — until “Burning Love Pad” anyway — and now it’s time for a woman to find her man.
That woman is Julie Gristlewhite (June Diane Raphael, “NTSF:SD:SUV::,” “New Girl”). She had her heart broken by Mark in season 1, and now she gets to break a lot of other hearts. Also, she gets to find love. Maybe.
Who are the eligible bachelors? While we don’t know all 16 of them yet, look for Jerry O’Connell, Michael Cera (who may be in the “friend zone” already), Paul Scheer, Kumail Nanjiani, Adam Brody and Colin Hanks among the suitors.
Adam Scott (“Parks and Recreation”) will also return to host the program.
Look for the actual series to begin (and get a refresher on season 1 in the meantime) on Yahoo! Screen.
