HBO Max has revamped its dark comedy series Made for love for the second season. The series sees Cristin Milioti Hazelina, a woman fleeing a 10-year marriage with a technology billionaire who implants a chip in her head that follows her every move, mood, conversation and sees what she sees.
Made for love is based on a novel by Alissa Nuttar as a performance created by Christina Lee, who also acts as an actress, and directed by SJ Clarkson for the first season. For season 2, Nutt joins as an actor. Nutt, Lee and Clarkson Executive co-produce Patrick Somerville, Dean Bakopoulos and Liza Chasin.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to work with our incredible actor and crew again,” Lee and Nutt said. “We would have announced the pick-up earlier, but it was the beast that closed Diane’s contract. Everyone thinks she’s a doll, but she’s a real hard ass.”
“Made for love is fun, dark and completely unique, ”said Suzanna Makkos, director of HBO Max’s original comedy and adult animation. “We are excited to be reunited with this dream group, made up of talented producers, amazing actors and CGI dolphins to tell the next chapter of this exciting story.”
Made for love is a darkly absurd and cynically miserable story of love and divorce. It follows Hazel Green, a woman in her thirties who is fleeing ten years after a suffocated marriage to Byron Gogol, the reigning technology billionaire. She soon notices that her husband has implanted a monitoring device in her brain – a Made for Love chip that will allow her to follow her, observe her and feel her “emotional information” as she tries to regain her independence. Through the chip, Byron is able to watch Hazel’s every move as he escapes to his desert hometown to resort to his aging widow Herbert and his synthetic partner Diane.
Starring alongside Cristin Miliot Made for love are Billy Magnussen, Ray Romano, Noma Dumezweni, and Augusto Aguilera, as well as guest stars Caleb Foote, Kym Whitley, Nyasha Hatendi, Patti Harrison, Ione Skye, Jon Daly, Matty Cardarople, Mel Rodriguez, and Sarunas Jackson.
