What to Watch: 5 Web Series Worth Checking Out

Miss your weekly fix of 30 Rock’s Tina Fey? Have you been hate-watching The Bachelorette? These web series could be the solution to your June TV gloom.

Burning Love | Ken Marino stars as fireman-turned-reality-show-contestant Mark Orlando in a star-studded spot-on spoof of The Bachelor. Backed by Ben Stiller, this reality-TV farce also stars Kristen Bell (House of Lies), Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation) and comedian Michael Ian Black. A notable Friends star, one who experienced a very public real-life break-up, makes a cameo in the first episode.

Daybreak | Tim Kring (Heroes) has created a suspenseful, five-episode series that’s loosely connected to his current network series, Touch, by way of a dodecahedron. (Think role-playing dice. No? Google it.) Episodes are directed by 24‘s Jon Cassar and star 90210’s Ryan Eggold and Disturbia’s Sarah Roemer. The plot centers around a global conspiracy that involves the mystical 12-sided shape.

The Flog | If you are having a bad day, just watch Felicia Day (of The Guild) operate heavy machinery with such glee that you will have no choice but to feel better.

7 Minutes in Heaven | Tina Fey does a 1.5-second impression of Sarah Palin and shows us the hand signal for “Lemon, out.”

Sonia’s Travels | The adorably engaging Sonia Gil talks travel. From how to say bonjour correctly to a history lesson about champagne, this show succeeds in being charming and informative.
