Margot Bingham (The Family, Barbershop 3) has officially joined the cast of Netflix’s She’s Gotta Have It.
The series centers on Nola (DeWanda Wise), a Brooklyn-based artist in her late 20s struggling to define herself and divide her time among 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. Wise’s Nola Darling is a sexually liberated, free spirited painter/mixed media artist.
Bingham will star as Clorinda Bradford, a hip emerging curator who aspires to global dominance with each new endeavor. Joie Lee (Spike’s sister) played Clorinda in the original film. She joins the cast alongside DeWanda Wise, who was recently cast as Nola, Anthony Ramos, Cleo Anthony, and Lyriq Bent.
Lee will direct each episode and executive produce alongside his wife Tonya Lewis Lee, whom Lee credits with having the initial idea to turn his movie into a series.
