'Hotwives of Orlando': Paul Scheer does his best Andy Cohen on new Hulu show -- TRAILER PREMIERE

NeNe Leakes better watch her back. Some new housewives are taking over the south — and these women are hot. 

The Hotwives of Orlando, that is. Paramount Digital Entertainment, the studio behind Burning Love, and Hulu are teaming up to produce the parody series starring Casey Wilson and Angela Kinsey. Comedian Paul Scheer likes to see himself as the Andy Cohen of it all, producing for Paramount with Jonathan Stern and even appearing on the show in a reunion episode. It’s no surprise to anyone who knows Scheer, who admits to being a diehard Housewife fan and watching the Bravo shows religiously with his wife. (For the record, Beverly Hills and Atlanta are his favorite cities.) “When I see something I really like, I want to do that,” Scheer tells EW. Scheer is no stranger to parody, having appeared on three seasons of NTSF:SD:SUV on Adult Swim and his “Arscheerio Paul” character, a send up to late-night host Arsenio Hall.

The inaugural season of Hotwives takes us 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. Scheer was inspired after seeing writers Danielle Schneider (who also appears on the show) and Dannah Phirman. perform at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater in black turtlenecks, interpreting words from some of Bravo’s housewives into dramatic monologues. But Scheer is sure that people who aren’t familiar with the original show can enjoy these hot wives too. “It’s super funny. These characters are already so outlandish that when you add comedy to it, it makes it bigger. I don’t think it matters if you’re a fan or not. You will get it.”
