Showtime to adapt Spike Lee's 'She's Gotta Have It' for TV series

Shes Gotta Have It

(Everett Collection)

Spike Lee’s first feature film, She’s Gotta Have It, is coming to Showtime in the form of a new series, a rep confirmed to EW.

She’s Gotta Have It premiered in 1986 and had a huge impact on the independent film movement. The movie stars Tracy Camilla Johns as a woman who won’t commit to any of her three boyfriends, instead choosing to enjoy each of their company while still maintaining her independence.

The TV series will be a contemporized take on the film, with Lee set to direct and write.
