Spike Lee is going to direct the new drama, NoLa for NBC.

The show will be set in New Orleans, and is a multicultural ensemble exploring the post-Katrina lives of New Orleans residents from different social and economic backgrounds. The Hollywood Reporter says Spike has hired Sid Quashie to write the script; the two will travel to New Orleans this week to meet with residents.

No word on when NoLa will air.
