'She's Gotta Have It' Trailer: Spike Lee Intros The New Nola Darling

DeWanda Wise as Nola Darling

She's Gotta Have It is being touted as a "modern update" of visionary director Spike Lee's breakthrough movie, but it feels like less of an update than a story that was always suited for modern, millennial times. 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.

Spike Lee has dug into his cinematic past - to his first full-length fiction joint, in fact - for this initial foray into TV courtesy of Netflix. The movie centers around Brooklyn artist Nola Armstrong who is in her late twenties and like many people that age is trying to figure herself out and manage her professional side with the personal side of her life.

The trailer features a glimpse of Spike as the original Mars Blackmon before introducing his new Nola Darling and her three lovers. Lee executive-produces and directs all 10 episodes, going all-in for his first episodic venture.

The official trailer is a promising, sexy, vibrant preview of what we can expect.

She's Gotta Have It stars DeWanda Wise as Nola, Divergent's Cleo Anthony as Greer, Saw III and IV's Lyriq Bent as Jamie, and Hamilton and White Girl's Anthony Ramos as Mars.

"I'm not a freak, I'm not a sex addict, and I'm damn sure nobody's property", she declares at the end of the trailer. Chyna Layne also stars as Shemekka Epps.

All 10 episodes will be available on Thanksgiving (that's November 23).
