It’s quite a leap from Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby to the South Bronx of the ’70s, but that’s the leap that Baz Luhrmann is taking with Netflix for his firs TV series, The Get Down.
The Get Down is about the birth of outlying music genres – hip hop, punk, disco – and how they changed everything. Check out the three-minute sizzle reel after the break.
Told through the lives and music of a ragtag crew of South Bronx teens, The Get Down is a mythic saga of the transformation of 1970s New York City.
