A First Look At Baz Luhrmann’s Hip-Hop Netflix Series ‘The Get Down’


The Get Down hasn’t announced a release date beyond “this year,” but a new trailer tells us we’re getting closer to a proper premiere.

Set in The Bronx in the 1970s, the teaser excerpt follows a crew of teenagers running amok in the Boogie Down streets during the dawn of disco and punk, which gives us reason to believe this is more than just a hip-hop series. Plus, what’s a good drama without a love affair?
