The Get Down


After 10 years, it appears the Baz Luhrmann period drama, The Get Down, is finally ready for mass consumption on Netflix.

Set in New York City during the late ’70s, the TV series focuses on the explosion of hip-hop, punk, and art culture that happened at the same time as the city’s increase in crime, violence and urban tumult. More specifically, The Get Down will center on a group of street-smart teens from the South Bronx.

According to a recent interview with Variety, Lurhmann said, “I’ve been obsessed with the idea of how a city in its lowest moment, forgotten and half destroyed, could give birth to such creativity and originality in music, art and culture. I’m thrilled to be working with my partners at Sony and collaborating with a team of extraordinary writers and musicians, many of whom grew up with and lived the story we’ve set out to tell.”
