He first created a documentary on Hurricane Katrina, and now Spike Lee is about to follow it up with a scripted drama for NBC set in New Orleans.
The new project, simply called "NoLa," is a multicultural ensemble exploring the post-Katrina lives of New Orleans residents from different social and economic backgrounds.
Lee said, "It's a show about the city trying to rebuild itself and the people who are trying to put their lives together".
"NoLa," which actually is the local slang for the Big Easy, will be executive produce and directed by Lee himself. Stay tuned for more on that project.
