E! Wants More ‘Burning Love,’ Picks Up Seasons Two and Three

/ Jul 29, 2013

Burning Love producers have new comedy series...

E! has picked up the second and third seasons of the Emmy-nominated “Burning Love,” and plans to air it on television this fall.

The faux-reality series, which parodies dating shows like “The Bachelor,” has been Yahoo’s biggest online video success to date. It’s produced and distributed by Paramount’s Insurge Pictures, and executive produced by Ben Stiller, Stuart Cornfeld, and Mike Rosenstein of Red Hour Films, Jonathan Stern of Abominable Pictures, and Ken Marino and Erica Oyama. Marino was the lead in the first season and serves as the show’s director, while his wife, Oyama, is the show’s creator and writer.

Earlier this year, the first season of “Burning Love,” which aired on Yahoo last year, was picked up by E and reformatted for television. The show was packaged into seven, half-hour episodes, which aired on E! every Friday night at 10pm ET/PT. E! says the first season was watched by nearly seven million people.

It appears the second and third seasons will get a similar treatment. In season two, the focus shifts to one of the losing bachelorettes in the first season, who is romanced by a colorful cast of characters played by the likes of Michael Cera, Adam Brody, Colin Hanks, Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer, Nick Kroll, Martin Starr, and Kumail Nanjiani. The second season also stars Ken Marino, Michael Ian Black, Adam Scott, and June Diane Raphael as the new object of everyone’s affection. The third season — “Burning Love: Burning Down the House” — brings back everyone as they try to win an all-new grand prize of $900.

“Burning Love” is nominated for the Primetime Emmys in the category of Outstanding Special Class — Short-Form, Live-Action, Entertainment Program.
