Yahoo has assembled an impressive talent roster for its latest original series, a reality show/"Bachelor" spoof called "Burning Love."

Ben Stiller, who is executive producing the series through his company Red Hour, makes an appearance, and "Party Down" fans will be happy to see Adam Scott, Kristen Bell and Ken Marino back together again. Malin Akerman and Michael Ian Black are also in the cast.

The series patterns itself after a "Bachelor"-style dating show, with Marino as manly-man firefighter Mark Orlando on his hunt for the perfect woman. (Which includes Akerman as a homeless potential mate.)

Marino also serves as director for the original series, which premieres on Yahoo on June 4. It was written by Marino's wife, actress and writer Erica Oyama.

The series is the latest original production from Yahoo, which in recent months has streamed a Bill Maher comedy special and features the interview show "Seven Minutes in Heaven," in which host Mike O'Brien interviews his guests in his closet.
