A departure from Nick Hornby’s 1995 novel and beloved 2000 film, Hulu’s High Fidelity centers on Rob (Zoë Kravitz, who also serves as an executive producer), a 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. All 10 episodes of the romantic dramedy launch Friday, Feb. 14.
Set to a soundtrack that spans music of the last three decades and today, we will watch Rob untangle herself from her “Top 5” heartbreaks: a first kiss in grade school, an untamed free spirit, a cheater, a lover turned close friend, and the messiest of all – Mac, the ex-fiancé she can’t seem to shake. Armed with two zany best friends and an encyclopedia of music, we watch as Rob asks herself some big questions: about love, about life – and about why we choose to share ours with the people we do.
High Fidelity also stars Da’Vine Joy Randolph, David H. Holmes, Jake Lacy, and Kingsley Ben-Adir.
