The first look images from Hulu’s High Fidelity, starring Zoë Kravitz, give us the first sense of how radically different the show will be from the 2000 film. All 10 episodes of the show will drop Valentine’s Day.
According to the official description: “A departure from Nick Hornby’s 1995 novel and beloved 2000 film, Hulu’s High Fidelity centers on Rob [Kravitz]…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.”
The show will also star Dolemite is My Name star Da’Vine Joy Randolph as well as David H. Holmes, Jake Lacy and Kingsley Ben-Adir. The series has been developed for television by writers Veronica West and Sarah Kucserka, who also serve as executive producers with Kravitz. Midnight Radio’s Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg along with Nick Hornby and Jeff Reiner will also serve as executive producers with Midnight Radio’s Adrienne Erickson as a producer. Jesse Peretz will also direct and executive produce the pilot. ABC Signature Studios, part of Disney Television Studios, will produce.
