High Fidelity

#1 Post by mfunk9786 » Thu Apr 05, 2018 8:20 pm

A High Fidelity TV series is coming with a female lead

Something tells me this is going to be a pretty tonedeaf undertaking less because of the gender of the lead and more because I'm not sure how something like High Fidelity as a 2018 TV series is going to play in general

This is from the Deadline piece linked in that article
While the Touchstone Pictures movie was rated R, I hear the TV series — an optimistic-in-tone mixtape/diary rom-com — will be PG-13 and intended for family co-viewing, consistent with Disney’s plans for a family-friendly OTT service that is not expected not feature R-rated movies or series.
So it sounds like it will be High Fidelity in name only

I'm sort of surprised High Fidelity was rated R. Just because of some f-words, I guess? It's been a while since I've seen it, but the last time I watched it I think my mother was watching it with me, so it certainly wasn't sending anyone channel flipping out of secondhand embarrassment.

R for "language and some sexuality". It probably passed the "fuck" threshold, otherwise it would have been PG-13.

She's got a roundabout connection to the original, at least! If they just make the TV series centered around her mother's character in the film, sign me up.

This is even more embarrassing than when I didn’t realize Danny Huston was John Huston’s son a few weeks ago, but I didn’t know she was Bonet’s daughter!

Bonet and Lenny Kravitz [though that one's a little easier to piece together], aka the Genetic Lottery
