Actor Cleo Anthony: Netflix Promotes Shows Differently Than Cable TV

November 14, 2017

Spike Lee is bringing his 1986 movie "She's Gotta Have It" to Netflix in a new form. The original series is a contemporary update on the indie classic. Cheddar Anchors Baker Machado and Hope King spoke with one of the series' stars, Cleo Anthony.

Anthony says he learned a lot from working directly with Lee on this project, and shared how much he appreciates the freedom Netflix gives its creators.

On Tuesday, Netflix released a poll in partnership with SurveyMonkey about the places viewers binge watch the platform. Some 67 percent say they binge-watch Netflix in public places such as airplanes, public restrooms, work, and cafes. Anthony says his favorite place to binge watch is in the car.

"She's Gotta Have It" premieres on Netflix Thanksgiving Day.
