Yesterday, a trailer dropped for a new HBO Max dark comedy series, Made For Love. And in the trailer, the first voice you hear is Ray Romano, performing (speaking) an eerie rendition of Crazy In Love. And while it isn’t the first thing you expect to hear in the trailer, it definitely is successful in leaving a mark.
The series, which Romano also stars in alongside Cristin Milioti, follows “Hazel Green (Milioti), a thirtysomething woman on the run after 10 years in a suffocating marriage to Byron Gogol, an unstable, needy, possibly sociopathic tech billionaire. Soon she discovers that her husband has implanted a revolutionary monitoring device – the Made for Love chip – in her brain, allowing him to track her, watch her and know her thoughts and feelings as she tries to stay alive. Also, there are dolphins. The chip allows allows Byron unprecedented access to Hazel’s brain as she flees to her desert hometown to take refuge with her aging widower father and, alarmingly, his sex doll.“
Made For Love, which is based on the 2017 novel of the same name, debuts on HBO Max this April.
