The series, a reboot of the R-rated 2000 film starring John Cusack, was originally pitched as more of a PG-13 "millennial-friendly" project.
However, with Kravitz on board as a producer, the project evolved into something "more mature than what Disney+ would feel comfortable programming," according to Deadline.
“Developing 'High Fidelity' with Zoë.., has been incredibly exciting and we want to ensure they are able to make the show they are envisioning as Disney+ is dedicated to supporting our creative partners," said Agnes Chu, SVP, Content, Disney+. (With Disney's buyout of Fox and all its assets, it now has a 60% share of Hulu.)
Once they realized that the show would be "better suited for another platform," she said, it made sense to move it to Hulu, whose darker original series include "The Handmaid's Tale" and "Castle Rock."
"We’re happy 'High Fidelity' will continue as part of our extended family," said Chu.
At this point, what isn't part of Disney's extended family?
Kravitz returns in Season 2 of "Big Little Lies," which will debut sometime in June.
