HBO Max has released a teaser for a series called Made for Love, which might give you a good reason to avoid getting too close to tech billionaires. Cristin Milioti plays Hazel Green, a woman who escapes an oppressive, decade-long marriage by fleeing to her hometown in the desert. Only one problem: Hazel’s husband has implanted a surveillance chip in her mind.
Byron Gogol (a character with a wonderful name played by Billy Magnussen) can use the chip to track and watch Hazel and to keep tabs on her “emotional data.” And somehow this is a comedy series. It’s based on a novel of the same name by Alissa Nutting.
If the dystopian, Black Mirror-esque premise has got you feeling glum, at least you can enjoy Ray Romano, who co-stars as Hazel’s dad, giving a unique rendition of Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” in the trailer. Oh, and his character’s partner appears to be a sex doll. It’s all happening here.
Made for Love will arrive on HBO Max in April.
