Author Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity proved quite successful as a movie back in 2000, and now it’s set to return as a television series.
The role of record store proprietor Rob gets a gender swap, with Zoë Kravitz starring in place of John Cusack. Her mum, Lisa Bonet, featured in the film version as one of Rob’s failed romances, so there’s some full circle kind of stuff going on.
Obviously it’s all been given a modern update, as much has changed since 1995. Here’s the official synopsis:
“A departure from Nick Hornby’s 1995 novel and beloved 2000 film, Hulu’s High Fidelity centres on Rob (Zoë Kravitz, who also serves as an executive producer), a female record store owner in the rapidly gentrified neighborhood of Crown Heights, Brooklyn who revisits past relationships through music and pop culture, while trying to get over her one true love.”
High Fidelity is set for a US debut on February 14, 2020.
