Fans can show their love for Yahoo’s scripted comedy Web series ‘Burning Love‘ by nominating the show for the upcoming Streamy Awards. The 3rd Annual Streamy Awards will be a two-hour fan-attended live event, with awards presented to top-tier new media talent in over 30 categories, including two audience choice awards determined by fan voting. The awards will be produced by Dick Clark Productions on Sunday, February 17, 2013 at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
‘Burning Love,’ which is executive produced by Ben Stiller, follows fireman Mark Orlando, played by Ken Marino, as he searches for the perfect woman. The series is a Web spoof of the series ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Bachelorette,’ and is hosted by Michael Ian Black, who parodies ‘The Bachelor’ host Chris Harrison.
‘Burning Love’ features appearances by several actresses, who portray contestants vying for Mark’s attention. The actresses include Kristen Bell as Mandy, a devout Christian; Malin Åkerman as Willow, a homeless woman; ‘Chasing Mavericks’ star Abigail Spencer as Annie, the too perfect contestant; ‘Anger Management’ star Noureen DeWulf as Titi, the rich contestant; and Jennifer Aniston as Dana, who keeps her identity secret.
Other actors to appear on ‘Burning Love’ include Stiller as Joe Rutherford, the previous season’s bachelor. Stiller’s wife, Christine Taylor, plays Symphony, the wife Joe picked from his season. ‘Park and Recreation’ star Adam Scott also appears on the Web series, as Damien, Mark’s psychiatrist.
