Where in the world can a sexy, charming bachelor fighter find a woman to love him? Someone who can make him laugh? Someone who isn't afraid of robots?
For hunky fire fighter Mark, played by "The State" alumnus Ken Marino, the answer to that questions is a "Bachelor" style reality show called "Burning Love" that recently premiered on Yahoo! Screen.
Using fire hoses instead of roses, Mark must narrow down a crop of women ranging from sexy to psychotic on the parody web series hosted by Michael Ian Black (doing his best vapid reality show host impression, of course). The series is co-executive produced by Ben Stiller, who makes a cameo as the previous year's contestant, and features some hilarious ladies including a very pants-less Natasha Leggero, Kristen Bell and even Ken Jeong in drag. In episode three, look out for "Party Down" and "Parks & Recreation" star Adam Scott as Mark's therapist.
Aside from lampooning the ridiculous nature of dating competition shows, a bulk of the hilarity in "Burning Love" comes from the funny women who play the contestants, including a blind girl, an 84-year-old, a mystery date in a giant panda costume and a pregnant flight attendant.
