Amazon distributed Lee's most recent feature film, "Chi-Raq", in 2015. But there's a almost unnoticeable adjustment there - the new Netflix trailer dubs Lee when he says "film" with the word "show". Lee's debut independent film She's Gotta Have It is now a Netflix Original series coming out on Thanksgiving.
Who is Nola Darling? That grimy heat isn't replicated in the sleek new TV series, but the story is just as sweltering in the first full trailer for She's Gotta Have It.
Cleo Anthony plays the model, Greer Childs, Lyriq Bent plays the overprotective investment banker, Jamie Overstreet, and Anthony Ramos plays the sneakerhead, Mars Blackmon. Nola is now-she is outspoken, complicated, progressive, unapologetic, passionate, sexual. Lee created and produced the show and directs all 10 episodes.

Royal Mail shares, which have fallen 16.3 percent this year, were up 0.3 percent at 386.8 pence at 1521 GMT. But the workers are determined to keep fighting-and say bosses' action has only strengthened their resolve.
As noted in the press statement, Lee himself is seen as the original Mars Blackmon, before introducing the new Nola Darling -DeWanda Wise (Shots Fired). Tonya Lewis Lee is executive producer.
Inspired by the 1986 movie of the same name, She's Gotta Have It follows the vivacious life of Nola Darling, a Brooklyn-based visual artist who leads a complex life romantically with a diverse trio of suitors, each of whom she loves for different reasons.
"She's Gotta Have It" premieres November 23 on Netflix.
