The movie is being turned into a TV series on Netflix, which Lee will also direct (for all 10 episodes).

An update on Spike's groundbreaking film, She's Gotta Have It, Lee brings back the character of Nola Darling, set in current day life.

The new series stars newcomer DeWanda Wise as Nola Darling, a progressive and outspoken woman in her late 20s navigating the choppy waters of relationship-building and working toward a career. Tonya Lewis Lee is Executive Producer. The film signaled a change of how African Americans are portrayed in movies. The She's Gotta Have It series is on the way, and the full trailer is now online.
