HBO Max just launched in the last week or so, and I’m not really sure what it makes it different than old HBO other than the release of new content.
Some is old content like Friends and Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
Some is new content, like the new series, Love Life. Narrated by a lady with a soothing, bedtime story-telling British accent, the romantic comedy series is about they journey from first love to lasting love, and how the people we’re with along the way shape us into who we become.
Anna Kendrick stars and is the executive producer of the series. Darby Carter (Anna) is a likable, relatable woman in NYC searching for love.
The first three episodes are available, and new ones will be released on Thursdays (three at a time!) Originally, HBO was going to release one episode at a time but opted to release three episodes at a time after such strong audience response. Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, shares with Hollywood Reporter, “HBO Max audiences have fallen in love with Love Life. It’s wonderfully gratifying to see that fans have immediately connected to the show and we are accelerating the release of episodes to meet their demand for more.”
The ten episode series will follow Darby from her first love to last love. Who will her last love be!?
This is a great show to pair with an easy-drinking Merlot, which is enjoyable and not too complex like this show. If you’re feeling fancy, Duckhorn Merlot is about as good as Merlot gets. Decoy Merlot is the more affordable option, and an incredible bottle as well!
