ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -
The City of Orlando is about to join the spotlight of a hit reality show. Well, sort of.
The City Beautiful serves as part of the inspiration for a parody show of the popular Bravo "Real Housewives" franchise.
The seven-episode series titled "The Hotwives of Orlando" will premiere exclusively on Hulu.com this year.
Fox 35's news partner The Orlando Sentinel reports the webisodes weren't even shot in Orlando, but Los Angeles, Calif.
The online series is described in a press release as:
"The inaugural season takes you inside the uber-exclusive and glamorous world of six hot housewives livin' large in Central Florida's sexiest city, Orlando. The show follows a cast of ladies 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."
The show poster reads: "Real glamour. Real drama. Fake boobs."
The "Sentinel" reports that the "Hotwives" will be played by Casey Wilson, of the show "Happy Endings"; Angela Kinsey, of "The Office"; Kristen Schaal of "Flight of the Conchords"; Tymberlee Hill, of "Drunk History"; Danielle Schneider, of "Upright Citizens Brigade" and Andrea Savage of "Step Brothers."
Guest stars include actress Kate Walsh from "Private Practice" and singer Joey McIntyre.
Paramount Digital Entertainment said the series will be available to Hulu and Hulu Plus viewers this year.
