Trailer Watch: Cristin Milioti Escapes Her Sociopathic, Mind-Reading Ex in “Made for Love”

Updated: June 2, 2021

“I don’t know what I want. But I know I don’t want you,” Cristin Milioti tells her ex in a new trailer for “Made for Love.” Based on Alissa Nutting’s novel of the same name, the HBO Max comedy series sees the “Palm Springs” actress playing Hazel, a 30-something woman desperate to escape her unhappy marriage. The only problem is that her tech billionaire husband (Billy Magnussen, “Aladdin”) of 10 years has implanted a chip into Hazel’s brain that merges their thoughts.

“Technology has improved the way we live. Why not improve the way we love?” he asks. The Made for Love implant doubles as a monitoring device, and he’s able to track Hazel, watch her, and know her thoughts and feelings after she announces she wants a divorce, making her escape from him nigh impossible.

Milioti’s credits include “The Mindy Project,” “Fargo,” and “How I Met Your Mother.”

“Made for Love” premieres on HBO Max April 1. Christina Lee (“Search Party”) serves as showrunner, and Stephanie Laing (“Dollface”) and Alethea Jones (“Dispatches from Elsewhere”) directed the first season of the series.
