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?
The Get Down added its female principal Herizen Guardiola back in May of last year. The 18-year-old Miami native, who is of Cuban and Jamaican descent, will live out the role of Mylene Cruz – an aspiring singer and preacher’s daughter.
Emmy winner and Nuyorican Jimmy Smits takes the lead as Francisco Cruz aka “Papa Fuerte,” a South Bronx political boss. Check ‘em out.
