Popular music is central to two Hulu series debuting this Friday, February 14: High Fidelity and Utopia Falls.
High Fidelity, adapted from the same 1995 Nick Hornby novel that spawned a feature film five years later, is a 10-episode romantic comedy. Zoë Kravitz plays Rob, a list-obsessed record store owner, in a role originated by John Cusack. The setting, switched from London to Chicago for the 2000 film, now moves to gentrifying Crown Heights in Brooklyn, NY.
Utopia Falls is a 10-episode coming-of-age sci-fi drama. In a post-apocalyptic future, 24 teens chosen to compete in a performing arts competition stumble upon a hidden hip-hop cache, The Archive (voiced by Snoop Dogg), which unleashes a rebellious spirit against the government of New Babyl. Robyn Alomar (Riot Girls) plays Aliyah, the most rebellious teen.
