Crazy in love, indeed. The HBO Max original series, Made For Love, is set to begin streaming on the platform on April 1, according to TVLine.
Made For Love follows the story of Hazel Green (Cristin Milioti, How I Met Your Mother), as she enjoys a life of luxury within her seemingly perfect marriage, via TVLine. However, her husband Byron (Billy Magnussen, Black Mirror), a tech billionaire, complicates their happy relationship when he creates a chip that allows married couples to share their thoughts. When Hazel learns that Byron has implanted such a chip in her brain without her knowledge, she decides to flee to her father, Herbert (Ray Romano, Everybody Loves Raymond). There’s only one problem – Byron is tracking her every move and thought, and he knows exactly where she’s headed.
The first official trailer for the series was released on the streaming company’s YouTube featuring the premiere date announcement. A teaser trailer was released earlier this March to prepare audiences for what was to come.
According to Variety, the dark comedy series is adapted from a novel of the same name written by Alissa Nutting (author, Unclean Jobs). The series is executive produced by Nutting, Made For Love showrunner, Christina Lee (producer, Search Party), Patrick Somerville (producer, Maniac), Dean Bakopoulos (writer, Don’t Come Back From the Moon), Liza Chasin (producer, Baby Driver) and SJ Clarkson (director, Orange Is the New Black). Alethea Jones (director, Dispatches From Elsewhere) and Stephanie Laing (director, Love Life) direct the series in addition to serving as co-executive producers, via Variety.
Upon the trailer’s release, many have commented on the Black Mirror-esqe nature of Made For Love, which is ironic, as both the stars are Black Mirror alums. Both Milioti and Magnussen starred in the anthology series’ fourth season episode, “USS Callister”.
