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

Quote:
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.
