FYI musicians: Spikee Lee still needs your music; he reposted his announcement earlier today, with a May 31 deadline. See the Instagram post below for all the details on what he’s looking for and how to submit.
Netflix ordered a 10-episode series for “She’s Gotta Have It” (based on Spike Lee’s 1986 feature directorial debut) which Lee is directing and executive producing, along with his producer-wife Tonya Lewis Lee.
In the upcoming series DeWanda Wise is starring as Nola Darling; Cleo Anthony is Greer Childs; Anthony Ramos is Mars Blackmon; Lyriq Bent is Jamie Overstreet; Margot Bingham is Clorinda Bradford; and Sydney Morton is Sheryl Overstreet.
Chyna Layne and Ilfenesh Hadera also appear in the series.
Netflix hasn’t announced a premiere date yet, but late 2017/early 2018 is very likely.
Currently in post-production, Spike wants your tracks for the series’ score, so get all the necessary info from his Instagram post below:
