About Made for Love
The classic story of boy meets girl, boy implants high-tech surveillance chip in girl’s brain… Based on the novel by Alissa Nutting, MADE FOR LOVE is a cynically poignant story of love and divorce. Season one followed “Hazel Green” (Cristin Milioti), a thirty-something woman on the run after ten years in a suffocating marriage to “Byron Gogol” (Billy Magnussen), a controlling tech billionaire. After discovering that her husband implanted a monitoring device – the Made for Love chip – in her brain, allowing him to track her, watch her, and know her “emotional data,” Hazel fled to her desert hometown to take refuge with her aging widower father Herbert (Ray Romano) and his synthetic partner, Diane. In addition to Foote, Milioti, Magnussen and Romano, season one of MADE FOR LOVE starred Dan Bakkedahl, Noma Dumezweni and Augusto Aguilera.

Made for Love is an adaptation based on the tragicomic novel of the same name by Alissa Nutting. The series follows Hazel Green, a thirtysomething woman on the run after 10 years in a suffocating marriage to an unstable, needy, possibly sociopathic tech billionaire. Soon she discovers that her husband has already implanted a revolutionary monitoring device – the Made for Love– in her brain, allowing him to track her, watch her, and know her thoughts and feelings as she tries to stay alive.
HBO Max has renewed the Max Original series MADE FOR LOVE for a second season. The critically acclaimed, darkly absurd comedy ranks among HBO Max’s top original half-hours since launch.
In addition to Milioti, Magnussen and Romano, season one of MADE FOR LOVE starred Dan Bakkedahl, Noma Dumezweni, Augusto Aguilera and Caleb Foote.
MADE FOR LOVE received considerable praise from critics with The Wall Street Journal writing, “[MADE FOR LOVE] occupies a sweet spot of satire, social critique and surveillance-state-inspired horror while still being hilarious” and hailing Milioti as “impossible not to watch.” Rolling Stone celebrated Milioti’s performance as “dynamic and winning as ever” and Romano’s skill as he “deftly underplays the material to get laughs.” The Chicago Tribune heralded MADE FOR LOVE as “cheekily bewitching” and praised Magnussen’s “incredible performance.”
“MADE FOR LOVE is funny, dark, and entirely unique,” said Suzanna Makkos, EVP, Original Comedy and Adult Animation, HBO Max. “We are thrilled to be reuniting with this dream team of talented producers, incredible cast, and CGI dolphins to tell the next chapter of this exciting story.”
“We’re thrilled we get the chance to work with our incredible cast and crew again. We would’ve announced the pick-up earlier, but it was a beast closing Diane’s deal. Everyone thinks she’s a doll but she’s a real hard-ass,” said executive producers and season two showrunners Christina Lee and Alissa Nutting.
Caleb Foote, previously a recurring guest star, is returning for the second season of the Max Original MADE FOR LOVE as a series regular. Foote plays “Bennett Hobbes,” the always cheerful executive assistant and confidante of “Byron Gogol” (Billy Magnussen).

Stephanie Laing was a Co-EP and directed six episodes, including the pilot and season finale episodes, and Alethea Jones directed two episodes. Christina Lee, season one showrunner, will be joined by Alissa Nutting to showrun season two.
