Octavia Spencer is America's First Female 'Self Made' Millionaire in New Trailer - Watch!

Octavia Spencer transforms into Madam C.J. Walker in the brand-new trailer for her upcoming series Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker!

The 47-year-old Truth Be Told actress stars in the new visual released by Netflix on Tuesday (February 25).

Here’s the synopsis for the four-part limited series, which was 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: “Octavia Spencer stars as Madam C.J. Walker, the trailblazing African American haircare entrepreneur who was America’s first female self-made millionaire.”

Self Made “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.”

It also stars Blair Underwood, Tiffany Haddish, Carmen Ejogo, Garrett Morris, Kevin Carroll, and Bill Bellamy.

Watch the trailer now, and don’t miss Self Made when it hits the streaming service on March 20! (See all the new movies and TV shows hitting Netflix in March 2020.)
