She's Gotta Have It

Nearly 30 years after Spike Lee's 1986 feature film debut, it was announced that She's Gotta Have It will be reincarnated for the small screen. Lee will direct and write the TV series — currently in development — that will look at his classic characters like Nola Darling and Mars Blackmon in a contemporary and gentrifiied Brooklyn setting. Here, we take a look at other films that successfully made it to the small screen.
