Nearly a year after the project was first attached to Netflix, the streaming giant officially announced news of an Octavia Spencer-led Madame C.J. Walker limited series from LeBron James at Sunday’s Television Critics Association press tour.

Netflix says this of the series: This is the untold and highly irreverent story of black hair care pioneer and mogul Madam C.J. Walker and how she overcame hostile turn-of-the-century America, epic rivalries, tumultuous marriages and some trifling family to become America’s first black, self-made female millionaire. Based on the book On Her Own Ground, by A’Lelia Bundles

Claws showrunner Janine Sherman Barrois and Elle Johnson will co-showrun. Nicole Asher is writing the script. Kasi Lemons is directing the first episode and is an executive producer for it. The series executive producers are Spencer, James, Maverick Carter and Mark Holder and Christine Holder for Zero Gravity

The series will be produced for Netflix by SpringHill Entertainment and Zero Gravity in association with Warner Bros. Television.
