Madame C.J. Walker‘s life is to be brought to life once again thanks to an unexpected collaboration between the Oscar winner Octavia Spencer and Lebron James.
Netflix are said to be eager to pick up the show which will see James and Spencer stand as producers and the latter play Walker herself with the full backing of Lebron’s Spring Hill Entertainment.
I am really proud of this project and that SpringHill will be partnering with Octavia to tell this important story. Every American should all know the story of Madam C.J. Walker. She was an innovator, entrepreneur, social activist, and total game changer whose story has been left out of the history books. I hope this project lives up to her legacy with a story that will educate and inspire.
