Netflix release first look at original show, The Get Down!
Following in his father’s footsteps, Jaden Smith, joins a compelling cast of young actors to bring us the latest Netflix phenomenon, The Get Down. Set in the late 1970’s in The Bronx, New York, Netflix describe the show as “a music-driven drama that blends disco, punk and hip-hop.”
Broken down and beaten up, The Get Down, tells the story of a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers who have nothing and no one, only each other to rely on. Armed with only verbal games, improvised dance steps, some magic markers and spray cans, the series is a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco – as told through the lives and music of the South Bronx kids who changed the city and the world…forever.
The Get Down will be available on Netflix 12th August 2016.
