A Gender Bending Reimagining
The series is a reimagining of Nick Hornby’s novel, High Fidelity, and it’s a movie adaptation, with the same title.

In the original movie, John Cusack played the main character, Rob, a white male owner of a record store.
Both stories revolved around revisiting past relationships while relating them to music.
Kravitz’ Rob is also a bisexual in the series version.
Kravitz’s mother, Lisa Bonet, played alongside Cusack in the original movie adaptation of the novel.
She is one of Cusack’s past love in the movie.
