The Hi-Fi The series was a 10 episode series that told the story from a female perspective. Kravitz played the leading role (played by John Cusack in the 2000 feature film) as the ultimate music fan obsessed with pop culture and top 5 lists. The series will also feature Da & # 39; Vine Joy Randolph as Cherise, David H. Holmes as Simon, Jake Lacy as Clyde and Kingsley Ben-Adir.
As a departure from Nick Hornby's 1995 novel and beloved 2000 film, the series revolved around Rob (Kravitz, who also serves as the executive producer), a female record store owner in the fast-growing neighborhood of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, who picks up on previous relationships through music and Pop culture as she tries to get over her only true love.
After Disney acquired Fox assets, which included a 60% majority stake in Hulu, Disney decided to switch the series from the more family-friendly Disney + brand to adult Hulu. Hi-Fi was written by Veronica West and Sarah Kucserka and comes from Midnight Radio and ABC Signature.
