Netflix has picked up MADAM C.J. WALKER, an Octavia Spencer series, the streaming platform announced during its Television Critics Association session.

The eight-episode series is based on the book “On Her Own Ground,” by A’Lelia Bundles. Spencer will star and executive produce the show.

Per Netflix, “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.”

The series is from Nicole Asher, Janine Sherman Barrois, Elle Johnson, LeBron James, Maverick Carter, Mark Holder, Christine Holder, and Kasi Lemmons.
