Are you a Real Housewives franchise superfan? Were you heartbroken when Happy Endings and The Office came to an end last year? If either (or both) of these apply to you, then you’re in for a real treat. From the brilliant minds that spoofed The Bachelor in Yahoo!’s Burning Love web series, comes a send-up of the mega-successful Bravo series, Hulu’s Hotwives of Orlando.
The new original series has recruited some major comedic talent to take on those one-upping, catfighting, new money reality TV ladies. For one, we’ve got Happy Endings’ Casey Wilson, an unabashed Housewives fan, donning a blonde wig and swilling her wine between dropping f-bombs. Add in a little Angela Kinsey (The Office) as the Bible-quoting bleach blonde, Crystal, serving up one-liners like, “I really hope you don’t go to Hell, because you’re so pretty!”
And some of the other Hotwives may also seem a little.. familiar to you. You’ve got tell-it-like-it-is PhePhe, dog-loving Brit Veronica, and the lost-in-space Amanda (30 Rock’s Kristen Schaal, in fine form). We see what you’re doing here, Hulu! Wonder what Andy Cohen will think?
This season promises to “take you inside the uber-exclusive and glamorous world of six hot housewives livin’ large in Central Florida’s sexiest city, Orlando ... as they fight over pretty much everything except for their love of shoes, plastic surgery and the pursuit of spending all of their husbands’ money.”
In addition to the ladies already mentioned, you may recognize Tymberlee Hill (Drunk History), Danielle Schneider (Upright Citizens Brigade), and Andrea Savage (Step Brothers). The show’s producers also teased supporting appearances by Kate Walsh (Private Practice), Weird Al Yankovic, Joey McIntyre (The Heat), Stephen Tobolowsky (Glee), an a (Andy Cohen-esque) Paul Scheer (The League) and more.
Count us in! Check out the trailer below and tune in to Hulu for more Hotwives of Orlando goodness.
