Spike Lee’s first television series She’s Gotta Have It based on the 1986 film of the same name is going to Netflix. While we got a sneak peak of the newly adapted series, we haven’t heard much chatter about it until now.
The official trailer kicks off with archival footage of Spike in the original as Mars Blackmon before he met DeWanda Wise, who is the new Nola Darling. The series fits perfectly fine in the rotation of new Black series like Insecure and Queen Sugar. For those of you unfamiliar with the storyline, Nola is juggling three different relationships with three completely different men who all have something to offer. I know what you’re thinking: “She’s loose”, but she’s just out here living her best life and doing what makes her happy.
She’s Gotta Have It premieres on Thanksgiving Day, and is directed entirely by Spike Lee.
