A parody of the long-running Real Housewives franchise on Bravo, The Hotwives of Orlando takes you inside the luxurious (and hilarious) world of Central Florida's sexiest city, Orlando. The show — akin to Yahoo's Burning Love or Comedy Central's Reno 911! — roasts the all-too-familiar world of reality TV. While the show doesn't have the same bite as the other two reality parodies, it delivers on the laughs thanks to the cast of funny ladies, including Angela Kinsey, Kristen Schaal, and Casey Wilson.
With all seven episodes debuting online on July 15, The Hotwives is Hulu's latest offering of original programing and sure to be one that's rewatched in between marathon sessions of its original counterpart, which is also available in its entirety on Hulu Plus.
