Season Two of the Hit Comedy Series ‘Burning Love’ Will Return to Yahoo! Screen on February 14th

Yahoo! and Paramount’s Insurge Pictures today announced that the second season of Burning Love, the popular comedy series created by Erica Oyama that spoofs reality dating shows, will return to Yahoo! Screen (www.yahoo.com/burninglove) on February 14th, as a Valentine’s Day treat. Season two features new cast members Jerry O’Connell, Michael Cera, Adam Brody, Colin Hanks, Joe Lo Truglio, Ryan Hansen, Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer, Nick Kroll, Nick Thune, Martin Starr and Kumail Nanjiani who join returning cast members Ken Marino, June Diane Raphael, Michael Ian Black and Adam Scott in the quest to find true love. New episodes will go live every Thursday and Friday starting February 14th. A trailer for the second season can be seen at www.yahoo.com/burninglove.

The second season of Burning Love follows Julie (June Diane Raphael), who failed to capture bachelor Mark Orlando’s heart the first time around, as she searches for love among a group of guys who are hopefully, but probably not, there for the right reasons. This installment of Burning Love is written by season one writer Erica Oyama (Childrens Hospital) and directed by Ken Marino (Childrens Hospital, Party Down).

A true web hit, the first season of Burning Love launched domestically on Yahoo! Screen last summer to critical acclaim. The series media called ‘ridiculously awesome’ (Buzz Sugar), one of the ‘top ten TV moments’ (Rolling Stone) and ‘a hilarious parody series’ (Entertainment Weekly), followed fireman Mark Orlando (Ken Marino) in his search for the perfect woman to marry or at least be engaged. Burning Love featured an impressive line-up of comedic actors from film and television including Marino, Ben Stiller, Malin Akerman, Kristen Bell, Michael Ian Black, Ken Jeong, Adam Scott, Abigail Spencer, Natasha Leggero, June Diane Raphael, Noureen DeWulf, Janet Varney, Kerri Kenney Silver, Paul Scheer, Beth Dover, and many more who return for Season 3 Burning Down The House.

Burning Love is executive produced by Red Hour’s Ben Stiller, Stuart Cornfeld and Mike Rosenstein, Abominable Pictures’ Jonathan Stern, Ken Marino and Erica Oyama’s Dancing Workfriend with Paramount’s Insurge Pictures distributing the project. Yahoo! is the first window distribution partner.

Ben Stiller and Red Hour Films have an extensive history creating top tier comedy in film and television as well as for digital platforms, including Tropic Thunder, Zoolander, Dodgeball, Stiller and Meara for Yahoo!, and now Burning Love. Jonathan Stern’s Abominable Pictures has an impressive track record for creating successful comedy television and digital series including Childrens Hospital and NTSF: SD: SUV.

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
