Hey guys, Jana here,
Netflix has released a brand new trailer for a new original series titled ‘The Get Down‘. The new series debuts the 13-episode season August 12. It hails from the brilliant mind of writer/director Baz Luhrmann (‘Romeo + Juliet‘, ‘Moulin Rouge‘) who works his magic on the 1977 hip hop scene in New York City. Starring Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Mamoudou Athie, Skylan Brooks, Tremaine Brown Jr., and Giancarlo Esposito.
The Get Down focuses on 1970s New York City – broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped — dying. Consigned to rubble, a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are nothings and nobodies with no one to shelter them – except each other, armed only with verbal games, improvised dance steps, some magic markers and spray cans. From Bronx tenements, to the SoHo art scene; from CBGBs to Studio 54 and even the glass towers of the just-built World Trade Center, The Get Down is a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco — told through the lives and music of the South Bronx kids who changed the city, and the world…forever.
