So Netflix is trying out a music driven series coming Aug. 12th. “The Get Down” is a 13 episode series set in 1970s New York City that will track the history of hip hop. From Direcctor/Writer Baz Lurhmann known for Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby (both movies with amazing soundtracks may I add) “The Get Down” is described as:
“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.”
Here’s the official trailer for “The Get Down”.
What do you think and will you be binging the show when it hits Netlix this Aug.?
