Award-winning movie director Spike Lee is giving his classic 1980s indie movie She’s Gotta Have It a TV makeover with Netflix later this year.
Lee is creating, producing and directing a new 10-episode TV series based on his 1986 debut film, set to be released on Thanksgiving Day (23rd November) 2017.
Netflix has released a teaser trailer for the new series, starring DeWanda Wise as struggling Brooklyn artist Nola Darling.
Lee shot the original She’s Gotta Have It in just 12 days on a shoestring budget, but the film ended up grossing over $7 million at the US box office.
All 10 episodes of the series – Lee’s first TV show – will be released on 23rd November 2017.
