Los Angeles, CA – January 28, 2013 – E! is expanding its weekly comedy offerings with the premiere of the hilarious, critically acclaimed, dating show spoof, “Burning Love.” What began as a web phenomenon that follows charismatic, yet incredibly shallow, Mark Orlando (Ken Marino) as he embarks on a journey to find the kind of ever-lasting love that is only found on reality TV, will now be featured as a weekly series in seven, half-hour episodes. With a lineup of comedic heavyweights from film and television, including Kristen Bell, Adam Scott, Malin Akerman and Michael Ian Black, with special appearances from Ben Stiller (Executive Producer), Christine Taylor and Jennifer Aniston, the series brings the laughs and mega-watt star power to every episode. “Burning Love” will make its television debut Monday, February 25 at 10:00pm ET/PT, with the third season premiere of “After Lately” following at 10:30pm ET/PT during E!’s Mock Block Monday.
“E! viewers love clever comedy, and ‘Burning Love’ is a hilarious parody of one of pop culture’s biggest franchises that is perfect for our audience,” said Cyndi McClellan, President, Network Strategy and E! News, E! “We recognize that good content can come from anywhere and are excited to bring this popular web sensation to television in a meaningful way.

The highly anticipated Sundance original series Rectify will début on April 22, 2013 at 10pm.
The six-episode hour-long series, created and written by Ray McKinnon (The Accountant, Mud, Lincoln Potter in SoA season 4) and executive produced by Mark Johnson & Melissa Bernstein (Breaking Bad), marks the first wholly owned Sundance Channel scripted production.
When Daniel Holden is released after nearly 20 years of complete isolation on Death Row, he returns as an outsider to his family, to his community, and to the times. Somehow, he survived the mental and emotional strain of his imprisonment, but now the walls have suddenly come crumbling down and Daniel is set free in a world he no longer understands. He’s an outsider, lost in a once familiar world, struggling to navigate his new found freedom. Combined with two decades of technological and social changes to his small town and the larger world, everything he encounters is a puzzle.
Daniel’s unexpected presence not only throws his family into disarray, it ripples out to all the people connected to his case — the prosecutor who rode the notoriety to become a State Senator, the Sheriff who pushed the boundaries of the investigation, and the entire town of Paulie, GA, that blamed him for killing one of their own. Like a deadly spark, Daniel’s release reignites the mystery, the power plays, and the questionable justice that condemned him.
Sarah Barnett, Executive VP and General Manager of Sundance Channel, said : “We couldn’t be happier with the caliber of this series : from the dramatic tension of the narrative, to the complexity of the beautifully written and acted characters, we’re confident that Rectify will resonate with our viewers, and also attract a whole new audience that is drawn to exceptional storytelling”.
