In 1986 Shelton Jackson “Spike” Lee made his directorial debut with She’s Gotta Have It. Over thirty years later, Lee proverbially returns home with a special guest: Netflix.
After announcing it in 2016, Lee will follow in the footsteps of Dear White People and will debut the ten-episode series of his seminal film on Thanksgiving. Marking Spike’s first foray into television, following a three-plus decade career of directing and producing films and documentaries, the series focuses on the life and loves of Nola Darling, Jamie and her relationships with Overstreet, Greer Childs and Mars Blackmon (Spike played Mars in the film).
Netflix’ Shes’s Gotta Have It debuts November 23rd. Watch the official trailer for it below.
