Mad Love is a comedy about a quartet of New Yorkers - two who are falling in love and two who despise each other... at least for now. Ben, a lawyer, is a hopeless romantic trying to build a relationship with Kate, a beautiful, smart girl whom Ben thinks is the woman of his dreams. Larry, Ben's unrefined best friend and co-worker, is a guy who doesn't believe in love and has a long track record as the third wheel. Connie, Kate's roommate, works as a nanny and finds Larry aggravating... or does she? Larry and Connie have a lot in common, but refuse to let their guard down long enough to see it.

Mad Love - Mad Love (JoJo album) - Netflix
Mad Love (stylized as Mad Love.) is the third studio album by American singer-songwriter JoJo. The album was released on October 14, 2016, through Atlantic Records. Incorporating a base core of R&B, pop and soul music, JoJo wanted the album to take fans through a journey from beginning to end while not only being for her, but relatable to all the fans who stuck by her though her years in limbo, and to serve as the “soundtrack to peoples' lives”. It serves as her first major official release in a decade following 2006's The High Road. A deluxe edition of the album featuring 4 bonus tracks was released simultaneously alongside the eleven-track standard edition. JoJo co-wrote every song on the album while also vocal producing every song. The album was JoJo's only album release under Atlantic Records, as she left in August 2017 to form her own label under Interscope Records. JoJo called upon the likes of Josh “Igloo” Monroy, Jussifer, Rock Mafia, Matt Friedman, Oscar Holter and MNEK as well as others, to handle production for the album. JoJo had recorded several incarnations of a third album while still contracted under Blackground Records since early 2008 that were ultimately shelved and scrapped following JoJo's release and signing with Atlantic Records in December 2013. The album had then begun production again from scratch and was re-written and recorded over a two-year period, with majority of the album being recorded in early 2016. Amongst those included are collaborations with rappers Wiz Khalifa and Remy Ma, in addition to her friend, Canadian singer Alessia Cara who featured JoJo in her video for “Scars to Your Beautiful” who features on a song called “I Can Only”. Occasionally the album dips into other genres such adult contemporary and soul music. Mad Love was promoted with live renditions of the album's songs during the Mad Love World Tour. The album was also preceded by the release of the lead single, a Matt Friedman and Oscar Holter of Wolf Cousins production called “Fuck Apologies”, featuring American rapper and Atlantic Records label mate Wiz Khalifa. The song became moderate success charting on the U.S. Billboards Pop Digital Songs chart, peaking at number forty. It became JoJo's first charting single in the UK since 2007's “Anything” peaking at number one-hundred and four on the singles chart and number eighteen on the UK R&B Singles Chart. “Mad Love”, “FAB.” featuring Remy Ma and “Music” all served as promotional singles leading up to the album's release. Upon its release, the album received generally favorable reviews from music critics, some noting that the album became JoJo's “bold coming-of-age statement” that helped cement her maturity and vocal growth since her previous album. Mad Love debuted on the US Billboard 200, Current Albums & Top Digital Albums chart at number 6, number 4 and number 2 respectively with 25,000 album-equivalent units, of which 19,000 were traditional album sales. A vinyl LP edition of the album was made available on February 3, 2017.
Mad Love - Artwork - Netflix
On September 7, 2016 just over a month away from the album's release, JoJo revealed the album artwork via her social media accounts and announced the album would be available for pre-order on September 16, 2016. Unlike JoJo's previous albums which both included a deluxe edition album with separate or modified artwork, a standard edition of the album artwork had been serviced to all markets. JoJo appears on the cover, “looking fierce as ever” while the rest of the artwork is otherwise blurred by paint smears and blots of pink, green, and white hues with the album art direction and design created by Nick Malvone. In early 2016 JoJo shot the album packaging photoshoot with LA based photographer Brooke Nipar. Photos from the shoot and a series of promotional/press photos were gradually released online, while others were released with the revamping of JoJo's official website.
