Spike Lee's 'She's Gotta Have It' is coming to Netflix as a series

  /  09.16.2016

A Spike Lee classic is being given new life and an opportunity for new eyes to see it.

His 1986 indie film She’s Gotta Have It will be re-developed into a 10-episode Netflix series that will be directed and executive produced by Lee himself — marking his first foray into series television — along with his wife Tonya Lewis Lee.

In the original film (which was shot over the course of just 12 days for $175,000 and earned Lee an Independent Spirit Award for best first feature), Nola Darling — a 20-something, sexually independent, Brooklyn-based artist — balances her work, social, and romantic lives as she juggles three different men, one of which is sneakerhead Mars Blackmon (played by Lee).

According to Netflix, the series will be a “contemporary update” of the original. Lee said, “We are hyped that Netflix is onboard with this vision … we are getting an opportunity to revisit these memorable characters who will still be relevant and avant garde three decades later.”
