High Fidelity trailer: Sometimes you gotta face the music
Hulu has released the official trailer for their upcoming romantic-comedy series adaptation of High Fidelity, featuring Zoë Kravitz’s Rob as she tracks down her five most memorable heartbreaks. The series will be available for streaming on February 14. Check out the video in the player below!
The High Fidelity series is a 10-episode series that will tell the story from a female point of view, with Kravitz playing the lead (played by John Cusack in the 2000 feature film) as the ultimate music fan who is obsessed with pop culture and top-five lists. The series will also star Da’Vine Joy Randolph as Cherise, David H. Holmes as Simon, Jake Lacy as Clyde, and Kingsley Ben-Adir.
A departure from Nick Hornby’s 1995 novel and beloved 2000 film, the series centers 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.
Following Disney’s acquisition of Fox assets, which included a 60% controlling stake in Hulu, Disney decided to move the series from the more family-friendly Disney+ brand to the adult-oriented Hulu. High Fidelity is being written by Veronica West and Sarah Kucserka and comes from Midnight Radio and ABC Signature.
West and Kucserka developed the series for television and will also serve as executive producers alongside Scott Rosenberg, who co-wrote the 2000 movie. Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, and Nick Hornby will also executive produce with Jesse Peretz executive producing and directing the pilot. Adrienne Erickson will produce for Midnight Radio.
