Whether director Baz Luhrmann is operating in Australia, “Verona Beach,” Long Island, or fin-de-seicle France, you can always count on his productions to be hyper-frenetic. Judging by the trailer for his new Netflix show The Get Down, the latest setting—1970s New York City on the eve of the hip-hop explosion—will be no different. Starring Jaden Smith and Shameik Moore, the story revolves around a group of Bronx teens who sit at the feet of Grandmaster Flash just as the disco era gives way to hip-hop. The show also stars Giancarlo Esposito (aka Gus Fring on Breaking Bad), Jimmy Smits, and Justice Smith.
The show’s first season will feature 13 one-hour episodes, and debut on Netflix at a yet-to-be-determined date in 2016. Shawn Ryan, who created The Shield, will executive produce along with Luhrmann and several others. Watch the trailer above.
