Never did we ever imagine listening to Ray Romano do acover, but here we are.
The first time we watched the new trailer for the HBO Max series Made For Love, we were simply so distracted by Romano's spoken word rendition of "Crazy in Love" that we were able to pay zero attention to the trailer itself. Whose idea was this? Why is he doing this? Is this a performance on the show, or special for this trailer? Do we want this on Spotify? Why is it working for us?
All those questions ran through our head before we watched the trailer a second time to find out what this show's all about. From what we can tell, Cristin Milioti plays a woman who discovers that her husband (Billy Magnussen) put a surveillance chip in her brain. Romano appears to play her dad.
HBO boss breaks silence on Game of Thrones plans, Joss Whedon controversy, more
HBO/HBO Max chief Casey Bloys takes wide-ranging questions on the future of Thrones, The Nevers, The Last of Us, Watchmen, Harry Potter, and more Your browser does not support this video ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Obviously, Joss Whedon has left The Nevers but he's still the show's co-creator, producer, writer, director... given the accusations against him Wednesday morning, do you still plan to air his series? CASEY BLOYS: Yes.Any sort of elaboration on that in terms of making that decision?No. I mean, he has left the show and it's a wildly talented cast. I think there's no reason to delay it or not put it out there.
"I touch on you more and more every time," Romano says as Milioti treks through a desert. It is mesmerizing.
This dark comedy series is based on the book of the same name by Alissa Nutting, and also stars Noma Dumezweni, Dan Bakkedahl and Augusto Aguilera. Bakkedahl plays a character named Herringbone while Aguilera plays someone called Liver, so there are just a lot of really intriguing things going on with this show that we're excited to understand someday.
Here's the actual series description from HBO Max:
"Made for Love follows Hazel Green (Milioti), a thirty-something woman on the run after 10 years in a suffocating marriage to Byron Gogol (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 (Romano) and his synthetic partner, Diane."
Sounds weird and terrifying. We're in!

Made For Love premieres on HBO Max in April.
Tina Turner triumphs over 'abusive life' in electrifying HBO documentary trailer .
'Tina' comes to HBO and HBO Max on March 27. © Provided by Entertainment Weekly Rhonda Graam/Courtesy of HBO Would it really be a modern HBO documentary if it didn't detail domestic and sexual abuse involving celebrities? As Turner herself says in the new trailer, "I had an abusive life. There's no other way to tell the story." But it seems like Tina will not involve as much legal investigation or testimony as previous HBO documentaries like Leaving Neverland and Allen v. Farrow.
