Stars Come Out Again for 2nd Season of Burning Love; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of January 28, 2013)

Yahoo! and Paramount's Insurge Pictures 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 Thursday, February 14, 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 14. A trailer for the second season can be seen at its official website above.

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 whom return for Season 3 Burning Down The House.
