she's gotta have it

Netflix to premiere Spike Lee’s episodic adaptation of She’s Gotta Have It this Thanksgiving.

Thirty-one years ago, Shelton Jackson “Spike” Lee’s first major film She’s Gotta Have It hit theaters. A story about love and empowerment, it introduced a slew of characters into the black lexicon, none more important than Mars Blackmon. This Thanksgiving, Lee’s directorial debut comes home for Thanksgiving, all with a little help from Netflix.

Announced in mid-2016, the Netflix adaptation of She’s Gotta Have It will follow in similar footsteps to the Dear White People adaptation Netflix rolled out in April. In the :15 second teaser clip, we get brief spotlights on the show’s main characters: Nola Darling, Jamie Overstreet, Greer Childs and Mars Blackmon. She’s Gotta Have It will have a bit of a Houston tinge to it as well. Jack Freeman’s “Nobody” will be featured on the show and Jack even spent time in New York with Lee himself earlier this summer.
