Published: Thursday 2nd Jan 2020 by David

Netflix has teamed up with Octavia Spencer to breathe new life into the Madame CJ Walker story.

The name of the series’ ‘Self Made.’

In it, Spencer tells the mogul’s inspirational story with help from Tiffany Haddish, Blaire Underwood and Carmen Ejogo.

Its release date, and images pulled from its shoot, below…

Release date: March 20th.


Octavia Spencer stars as Madam C.J. Walker, the trailblazing African American haircare entrepreneur who was America’s first female self-made millionaire. Inspired by the book, On Her Own Ground: The Life and Times of Madam C. J. Walker, written by Walker’s great-great-granddaughter A’Lelia Bundles, the Netflix original series brings the uplifting story of this cultural icon to the screen for the first time. Against all odds, Walker overcame post-slavery racial and gender biases, personal betrayals and business rivalries to build a ground-breaking brand that revolutionized Black haircare, as she simultaneously fought for social change.
