Spike Lee’s debutfilm “She’s Gotta Have It” blir Netflix-serie



För 30 år sedan fick regissören Spike Lee sitt genombrott med
dramakomedin “She’s Gotta Have It” vilket skulle innebära starten på
en lång och framgångsrik karriär inom filmbranschen. I torsdags
fastställde Entertainment Weekly att Netflix gjort klart med 10
avsnitt i en ny TV-serie baserad på filmen regisserad av Lee själv.



I “She’s Gotta Have It” får vi följa den självständiga artisten Nola
Darling från Brooklyn och hennes tre älskare som hon dejtar
parallellt. Spike Lee själv verkar lyrisk och förklarar sin glädje över projektet
i ett pressmeddelande:


“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
