When I first found out Spike Lee would be taking his talents to Netflix I was more than ecstatic! Films from Spike Lee are legendary in creating a new way African Americans were seen in front of and behind the camera. New standards were set that we haven’t seen in films (not even in 2017) Luckily, we’ll be able to see it again.
“SPIKE LEE’s New Joint, a Netflix original series premieres on Thanksgiving, November 23, 2017.
She’s Gotta Have It, the Netflix Original Series from Academy Award Nominated Director SPIKE LEE, is a 10-episode contemporary update of Lee’s 1986 revolutionary debut film.
