Variety reports that Disney's forthcoming streaming service has given the typical 10-episode order to the High Fidelity reboot, which will concoct a female version of the story of a newly single thirty-something dude who owns a record store.

This just in: Zoë Kravitz is the new John Cusack.

Kravitz, the daughter of musician/actor Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet (who starred in the movie), will also executive produce the project.

Kravitz most recently starred in the critically-acclaimed HBO series "Big Little Lies" and will appear in its upcoming second season.

Kravitz is well-known to genre fans for roles in Marvel Comics adaptation X-Men: First Class, where she played stripper-turned-mutant superhero Angel Salvadore, and action-heavy Mad Max: Fury Road, where she played Toast the Knowing.

Bull's Veronica West and Sarah Kuscerka are penning the series and they duo will serve as EPs alongside Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg. The show's ten-episode order will debut on Disney's forthcoming streaming platform, which is now scheduled to launch in the second half of 2019.

Disney's premiere direct-to-consumer streaming service has been characterized by Disney CEO Bob Iger as "the biggest priority of the company" for 2019. She is repped by Paradigm, Untitled Entertainment and Edelstein, Laird & Sobel.
