Stan today announced that the critically acclaimed and darkly absurd comedy Made For Love has been renewed for a second season 

Made for Love is a cynically poignant story of love and divorce following 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. 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 (Ray Romano) and his synthetic partner, Diane.

The HBO Max series stars Cristin Milioti (Stan’s No Activity), Billy Magnussen (Get Shorty), Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond, Get ShortyDan Bakkedahl (Veep), Noma Dumezweni (The Undoing), Augusto Aguilera (Chasing Life) and Caleb Foote (The Kids Are Alright).

Revelation looks forward with optimism to lockdown lifting on Saturday 3 July, and the festival continuing until 11 July as planned.  
 
“The program picks up as soon as lockdown lifts – we come out of lockdown ready to rock on Saturday 3 July (for the moment),” says Festival Director, Richard Sowada.
 
Holding true to this year’s theme of Distant but Connected, Revelation will be moving along in the virtual world, broadcasting talks and panels from this Thursday 1 July. Details will be posted on the festival website and social media channels. 
 
“Our first talk will be with Cooper Raiff – director, producer, writer, editor and star of the sensational SXSW award winning film Freshman Year,” Sowada says.
