DeWanda Wise Joins Spike Lee’s “She” Remake

DeWanda Wise (“Shots Fired”) is set to play the iconic role of Nola Darling in Spike Lee’s ten-episode TV series remake of his groundbreaking 1986 film “She’s Gotta Have It” for Netflix.

The series centers on Nola (Wise), a Brooklyn-based artist in her late 20s struggling to define herself and divide her time amongst her friends, her job and her three lovers: the cultured model Greer Childs; the protective investment banker Jamie Overstreet; and Da Original B-Boy Sneakerhead Mars Blackmon who still wears Jordans but now is a social-media phenomenon.

Nola is a sexually liberated, free spirited painter/mixed media artist. Lee is set to direct all episodes of the series, which he created and executive produces with Tonya Lewis Lee.
