*Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer is all set to make her debut as African American hair care entrepreneur Madam C.J. Walker in “Self Made” from Netflix.

Actually, the full title is “Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker.” It starts its limited run on the world’s largest streaming service starting March 20. In the meantime, Netflix is teasing us with six first look images from the four-part limited series.

If you’re wondering, “Self Made” is inspired by the book written by Walker’s great-great-granddaughter A’Lelia Bundles. The production offers a glimpse into the life of Walker including how she overcame post-slavery racial and gender bias to become America’s first self-made millionaire.

Starring alongside Spencer is veteran actor Blair Underwood who plays her husband, C.J. and her longtime lawyer, Freeman Ransom, is portrayed by Kevin Carroll.
