Hulu has unveiled an amplified programming slate that includes the reality-TV send-up The Hotwives of Orlando, starring Casey Wilson (Happy Endings) and Angela Kinsey (The Office), and the supernatural comedy Deadbeat, fronted by Tyler Labine (Reaper).
Hulu’s new offerings also include the Scandinavian drama Broen, on which FX’s The Bridge was based, and fresh episodes of programs such as The Awesomes, Moone Boy, Rev. and Quick Draw.
The Hotwives of Orlando, which is brought to you by the same studio as the Bachelor-spoofing Burning Love and also stars Kristen Schaal (30 Rock), Tymberlee Hill (Drunk History), Danielle Schneider (Upright Citizens Brigade) and Andrea Savage (Step Brothers), 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.”
Hotwives will also feature supporting appearances by Kate Walsh, Weird Al Yankovic, Joey McIntyre, Stephen Tobolowsky, Paul Scheer and others. Watch a trailer:
The 10-episode Deadbeat is co-created by Cody Heller and Brett Konner (The Inbetweeners) and stars Labine as Kevin Pacalioglu, a hapless but gifted medium who helps New York’s ghosts settle unfinished business. Brandon T. Jackson (Tropic Thunder) plays his best friend Roofie, while Cat Deeley (So You Think You Can Dance) co-stars as Camomile White, a glamorous celebrity medium who is Pacalioglu’s nemesis.
