There is no doubt that Spike Lee has had a major impact on the culture with his films for more than 30 years.Now one of Spike Lee’s classic joints will be revived and turned into a Netflix series.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Spike Lee’s 1986 film, “She’s Gotta Have It” will be making its way to Netflix as a 10-episode miniseries.
This year marked the films 30th anniversary, and Lee’s wife, Tonya Lewis Lee came up with the idea to adapt the film for a new generation. The synopsis will stay true to the films original, which follows Nola Darling, a Brooklyn artist who dates three men at the same time as she finds it difficult on which one to choose.
Spike Lee said in a statement, “She’s Gotta Have It has a very special place in my heart. We shot this film in 12 days (2 six day weeks) way back in the back back of the hot summer of 1985 for a mere total of $175,000. Funds that we begged, borrowed and whatnot to get that money. This is the 1st official Spike Lee Feature Film Joint and everything that we have been blessed with in this tough business of film all have been due to SGHI.”
Spike Lee will direct all episodes of the miniseries and also serve as executive producer alongside with his wife.
