Web series “Burning Love” began its first season mocking “The Bachelor,” so where better to start for season 2 than taking on “The Bachelorette.” Season two is making its debut, appropriately enough, on Valentine’s Day.
Season one followed fireman Mark Orlando, played by comic actor Ken Marino, in a search for true love — or, uh, something more inappropriate. Season two takes one of the ladies who didn’t quite make it the first time around, Julie Gristlewhite (played by June Diane Raphael), and has her judging a variety of dudes played by hilarious guys you may recognize from a million other things.
The star-studded show includes a who's who of Funny Hollywood, including many of the cast members from the hilarious, loved, but not-quite-watched-enough “Party Down.” This season includes stars like Paul Rudd, Ben Stiller, Michael Cera, Jerry O’Connell, Adam Scott, Colin Hanks, Adam Brody, Michael Ian Black and many more. The first season also included Jennifer Aniston, Kristen Bell, Ken Jeong and Malin Ackerman. (How will they top the reveal of Jennifer Aniston inside a panda suit?)

The show was filmed around the Southland, including at Universal Studios and a Calabasas mansion where most of the show is set.
The show features some easter eggs for fans of the real "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette," with contestants playing on common types from those shows or, in some cases, specific real people.
“Burning Love” is such a great Web series that it’s making the move from Web to TV — previous episodes are being re-packaged and coming to E! on Feb. 25. You can also keep your eyes out for season three, which takes on the next level down dating shows like the “Bachelor Pad.”
