Maniac Creator Lands Pair of Shows with WarnerMedia Streamer


WarnerMedia has ordered two new series for its forthcoming streaming service, Made for Love and Station Eleven, both from showrunner Patrick Somerville.

Made for Love is a 10×30-minute straight-to-series adaptation based on the tragicomic novel of the same name by Alissa Nutting. A story of divorce and revenge, the series will explore how far some will go for love, and how much further others will go to destroy it.

A post-apocalyptic saga spanning multiple timelines, Station Eleven tells the stories of survivors of a devastating flu as they attempt to rebuild and reimagine the world anew while holding on to the best of what’s been lost.

Somerville will team with S.J. Clarkson, who is serving as director and executive producer, on Made for Love. Hiro Murai has signed on as director and EP of Station Eleven. Somerville will serve as showrunner for both.

Somerville most recently created, wrote and served as the co-showrunner and executive producer of the Netflix series Maniac. He previously was a writer and producer for the HBO drama The Leftovers.
