Watch The Trailer For Netflix’s Hip-Hop Disco Drama Series ‘The Get Down’

Netflix and chill just got a little more funky.

If you are still in the mood to Netflix and chill, Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming series The Get Down is just the music-driven drama you need. Following a group of young musicians, graffiti artists and dancers in the Bronx in the late ‘70s, the series chronicles the rise of hip-hop, disco and punk within the New York art scene.

"The pale-faced media tells us we're all going to hell," says the opening narration. "But maybe we just the first ones to light the fire. I'm trying to snuff it out, but that's like oxygen to a flame."

The trailer glimpses the show’s cast, which included Jimmy Smits, Justic Smith, Herizen Guardiola, and Shameik Moore. The Get Down will premiere on Netflix later this year, joining further original series Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Orange Is The New Black, Making A Murderer and many more.
