Hulu’s new scripted comedy “Hotwives of Orlando” is technically a parody of Bravo’s “Real Housewives” series. As many have noted, trying to satirize the absurd franchise is a difficult task, because the actual shows — from New York to Orange County — are already so much like parodies of themselves.
Luckily, the “Hotwives of Orlando” creators know that. So instead of skewering the “Housewives” concept, this show goes a much more clever route: Being so completely over-the-top ridiculous, yet pulling back just enough, that it almost seems like it could be a companion show. Really, it’s almost impossible to tell the two apart.
