Netflix has been swooping up a bunch of Hollywood stars and producers to make new series, and it’s been working so far. So it only makes sense that Spike Lee would be on their radar, right?
Well obviously, and their partnership is coming to your TV or computer soon. The legendary director had previously announced plans to turn his 1986 movie She’s Gotta Have It into a brand news series. Now, we’re getting a glimpse of what that’ll look like.
A debut sneak peek dropped at the 2017 Essence Festival, but for those who weren’t there, you can see a preview of what’s to come via YouTube. The dynamic seems to remain from Spike’s original film. The only difference this time around is that we’ll get to see the character arcs unfold over the course of the series, rather than condensed to a movie only an hour and 24 minutes long.
She’s Gotta Have It reportedly premieres on Netflix this Thanksgiving. Check out the trailer below.
