Nola Darling is back in She’s Gotta Have It, a Netflix original series from director Spike Lee, which serves as a contemporary update of Lee’s original 1986 landmark film that signaled a change in how African-Americans are portrayed in movies.

The show stars DeWanda Wise (Shots Fired) as Nola Darling, a Brooklyn-based artist in her late 20s, struggling to define herself and divide her time among her friends, job, and three lovers.

She balances “the cultured model” Greer Childs (Cleo Anthony, Divergent ), “the protective investment banker” Jamie Overstreet (Lyriq Bent, The Book of Negroes), and “da original B-Boy Sneakerhead” Mars Blackmon (Anthony Ramos, Hamilton).

Chyna Layne (Precious), Ilfenesh Hadeara (Baywatch), Margot Bingham (Barbershop: The Next Cut), Sydney Morton (Love, New York), and Joie Lee (Do The Right Thing) also star.

Lee created and produced the show and directs all 10 episodes. Tonya Lewis Lee is executive producer, and Barry Michael Cooper and Lynn Nottage serve as producers.

She’s Gotta Have It premieres Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 23.
