Based on Alissa Nutting’s 2017 novel of the same name, Made for Love is a darkly absurd and cynically poignant story of love and divorce. It follows Hazel Green, a thirty-something woman on the run after 10 years in a suffocating marriage to Byron Gogol, a controlling tech billionaire. Soon she discovers that her husband has implanted a monitoring device – the Made for Love chip – in her brain, allowing him to track her, watch her, and know her “emotional data” as she tries to regain her independence. Through the chip, Byron’s able to watch Hazel’s every move as she flees to her desert hometown to take refuge with her aging widower father Herbert and his synthetic partner, Diane.
The series stars Cristin Milioti, Billy Magnussen, Ray Romano, Noma Dumezweni, and Augusto Aguilera along with guest-stars Caleb Foote, Kym Whitley, Nyasha Hatendi, Patti Harrison, Ione Skye, Jon Daly, Matty Cardarople, Mel Rodriguez and Sarunas Jackson.
Made for Love is created by Christina Lee, who is also serving as the showrunner. It will be executive produced by Nutting, Lee, Patrick Somerville, Dean Bakopoulos, and Liza Chasin. SJ Clarkson, who is known for her work in TV shows such as Dexter, Jessica Jones, and Succession, has also signed on to the series to serve as an executive producer and director.
The series marks Milioti’s first major TV project as the leading star after appearing in a number of TV shows such as Nurse Jackie, How I Met Your Mother, The Mindy Project, Fargo, and Modern Love.
