HIgh Fidelty Coming to Small Screen

September 26, 2018

Zoë Kravitz will star as the lead role in the upcoming TV adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel, High Fidelity.

The series will run for 10 episodes on Disney ’s upcoming streaming service, according to Variety.

The show will depart from the 1995 book, which featured a London record storeowner in his mid-30s named Rob Fleming, and recast the lead as a woman. It was previously adapted into a movie set in Chicago that starred John Cusack in 2000 and as a Broadway musical, which relocated the store to Brooklyn, in 2006.

Here’s a fun fact, Kravitz’s mother, Lisa Bonet, starred opposite Cusack in the film adaptation.

Disney is planning on launching its streaming service in late 2019. It will feature a mix of original content, like High Fidelity, and works from its archives, including Marvel and Lucasfilm.
