Netfilx dropped the first trailer for its long-awaited hip-hop musical drama “The Get Down”. With Baz Luhrmann (The Great Gatsby and Moulin Rouge) at the helm of the series, we were guaranteed that it wouldn’t disappoint.
The saga follows a group of South Bronx kids at the epicentre of a huge change in American and global culture: the birth and rise of hip-hop, disco and punk music in 70s New York.
The group of teenagers move from their Bronx tenements to the SoHo art scene, from CBGBs to Studio 54, in the 13-episode drama that weaves together graffiti, sex, and violence, with music standing in as the light at the end of the tunnel.
Here’s the first official trailer of Baz Luhrmann’s hip-hop drama.
