‘Made for Love’ on HBO Max

Made for Love, an absurdist series about a 30-something woman trying to escape the clutches of her tech-billionaire husband, debuts tomorrow, April 1, on HBO Max.

Also premiering is the eight-episode fourth season of The Great Pottery Throw Down, a reality competition show that originally aired on the BBC.

Made for Love

This twisted comedy kicks off with three episodes, followed by three more episodes Thursday, April 8, and the final two episodes one week later, April 15.

Based on Alissa Nutting’s novel, a woman (Cristin Milioti) flees her controlling husband (Billy Magnussen) after a 10-year suffocating marriage. Problem is he has implanted her brain with a monitoring device called the Made for Love chip. He can track her and collect her “emotional data” as she seeks refuge with her widower father (Ray Romano) and his synthetic partner.

The cast includes Veep’s Dan Bakkedahl, Noma Dumezweni, Augusto Aguilera and Caleb Foote.

The Great Pottery Throw Down

Twelve of the UK’s best home potters square off to see who has the hands of an artist – and who has feet of clay.

Adjudicated by master potter Keith Brymer Jones and ceramics expert Rich Miller, the contestants race against the clock to meet weekly challenges that include fashioning a cheese set, garden water feature, a sink, naked Raku vases, as well as mini at-the-wheel challenges.

Siobhan McSweeney hosts.

You can find all four seasons, 32 episodes, on HBO Max.

HBO Max costs $14.99 a month, with a seven-day free trial. For more, visit HBOMax.com.
