It took Baz Luhrmann over ten years of developing, but on August 12 the world can finally enjoy the new Netflix series The Get Down. The series is described as “a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to Hip Hop, punk and disco”, the Sony Pictures Television show takes in Bronx tenements, the SoHo art scene, CBGB, Studio 54 and the just-built World Trade Center. Justice Smith, Shameik Moore, Skylan Brooks and Tremaine Brown Jr. will play the shows lead male roles. And since our other favourite music serie Vinyl stopped after just one season, we’re happy to have a substitute!
