Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Thursday, November 23. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

She’s Gotta Have It (Netflix): More than 30 years after the first Spike Lee joint burst onto the independent-film scene, it’s been reconfigured as a Netflix series. DeWanda Wise stars as Nola Darling, the independently minded Brooklynite in the process of discovering who she is as a person and an artist, none of which will be defined by the three men she’s seeing: a model (Cleo Anthony), an investment banker (Lyriq Bent), and a guy who’d make a pretty good Nike pitchman (Anthony Ramos). Check out Ashley Ray-Harris’ review to find out if you’ve got to have She’s Gotta Have It as part of your Thanksgiving TV feast.


Regular coverage

Arrow (The CW, 9 p.m.)

Wild card

Anne Of Green Gables: The Good Stars (PBS, 8 p.m.): Canada gave thanks last month, but you can still be grateful for this TV movie starring one of the Great White North’s proudest literary exports, which is not to be confused with the Anne Of Green Gables adaptation that arrived on Netflix earlier this year. You can tell them apart because this is the one with Martin Sheen.
