Spike Lee released the premiere date and teaser-trailer for the Netflix series adaptation of his 1986 film ‘She’s Gotta Have It.’
The 10-episode project will launch on Thanksgiving, November 23rd.
Lee created, produced and directed the contemporary update of She’s Gotta Have It, which marks his first TV project.
DeWanda Wise stars as Nola Darling, a late-Twenties Brooklyn artist navigating career, personal and romantic challenges. Greer Childs (Divergent‘s Cleo Anthony), Jamie Overstreet (The Book of Negroes‘ Lyriq Bent) and Mars Blackmon (Hamilton‘s Anthony Ramos) play DeWanda’s three lovers. The cast also features Chyna Layne (Precious), Ilfenesh Hadera (Baywatch), Margot Bingham (Barbershop: The Next Cut), Sydney Morton (Love, New York) and Joie Lee (Do The Right Thing).
The original She’s Gotta Have It established Lee as an innovative director and helped revolutionize American independent cinema. The film, produced on a thin budget of under $200,000, went on to gross over $7 million and won Lee the “Award of the Youth” (Foreign Film) prize at the 1986 Cannes Film Festival.
