'She's Gotta Have It' Show Releases Full Trailer, Announces Premiere Date

Lee's debut independent film She's Gotta Have It is now a Netflix Original series coming out on Thanksgiving.

The premise is the same, don't you dare call Nola Darling a sex addict (instead, try a "sex positive, polyamorous pansexual") as she juggles three men; Greer Childs, Jamie Overbrook and Mars Blackmon.

The trailer gives new life to Lee's story, and in many ways reminds me a bit of HBO's Insecure (which likely took some of its inspiration, as so many other movies and TV shows have, from the 1986 film).

Starring newcomer DeWanda Wise as the sassy Nola Darling, the rebooted She's Gotta Have It is set in the Brooklyn neighbourhood of Fort Greene, a community bursting with creativity but also under threat of losing its identity thanks to ongoing gentrification. Nola's therapist will be played by Heather Headley, with Margot Bingham, Chyna Layne, and Elise Hudson playing her friends.

His wife, Tonya Lewis Lee, is also executive producing, and it does seem like this new Nola is demanding you pay attention to her autonomy. The 10-part series returns to director Spike Lee's roots just over 30 years after his black-and-white drama of the same name premiered in theaters. While we got a sneak peak of the newly adapted series, we haven't heard much chatter about it until now.

She's Gotta Have It releases November 23 (Thanksgiving) on Netflix.
