Disney's forthcoming streaming service has today given a series order to a reboot of High Fidelity based on the 2000 film and the novel by Nick Hornsby. Zoë Kravitz (Big Little Lies, Fantastic Beasts) will play the lead role in the series.

The series is a reimagining of the film and book told from the female point of view. Kravitz will star as the ultimate music fan and record store owner who is obsessed with pop culture and top five lists.
