Spike Lee’s “She’s Gotta Have It” Renewed
Spike Lee has snagged more small screen time on Netflix. The producer’s 1986 adaptation of She’s Gotta Have It, has been renewed for a second season. Both Lee and the series star DeWanda Wise shared the news on social media.
The series stars breakout actress DeWanda Wise as Nola Darling, an uncompromising woman in her late twenties struggling to define herself and divide her time among her Friends, her Job and her Three Lovers: The Cultured Model, Greer Childs, The Protective Investment Banker, Jamie Overstreet and Da Original B-Boy Sneakerhead, Mars Blackmon.
Nola’s story is set entirely in Fort Greene, the vibrant BROOKLYN enclave that’s home to a thriving artists’ colony but also evolving and changing in the modern era as gentrification remakes the neighborhood.
Created and executive produced by Spike Lee and Tonya Lewis Lee through their 40 Acres banner, the series also stars Lyriq Bent, Cleo Anthony, Ilfenesh Hadera, Margot Bingham, and Anthony Ramos as Mars Blackmon, the iconic role originated by Spike Lee.
