Nickelodeon spinoff The N said Tuesday that production has begun on its first dramatic miniseries, Miracle's Boys, a teen drama centered around three orphaned brothers coming of age in Harlem.
Spike Lee will direct the premiere episode, which will debut on The N in February. Lee’s wife, Tonya Lewis Lee, is the show’s executive producer.
Miracle's Boys will be shot entirely on location in Harlem.
“We're excited to have the opportunity to feature the vibrancy of Harlem and the local community to help tell this authentic story,” The N vice president of programming and production Sarah Tomassi Lindman said in a prepared statement. “Spike Lee is the perfect director to help The N bring the series to life.”
