Made for Love is a darkly absurd and cynically poignant story of love and divorce.

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.
Starring alongside Milioti is 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.
