Netflix_2014_logo.svgNetflix and Baz Luhrmann has released the first teaser to the musical drama series “The Get Down.” The show is also made in collaboration with Boyz II Men’s Shawn Ryan and will feature the disco scene in the 1970s.

With a group of South Bronx kids as its central characters, the show will explore the birth of punk and hip hop in the decade.

Luhrmann said he had the idea for 10 years before finally sitting down with Netflix to do the series in February last year. “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,” he said per Variety.

In the cast are Shameik Moore, Justice Smith, Jaden Smith, Herizen Guardiola, Skylan Brooks, Tremaine Browne Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jimmy Smits and Giancarlo Esposito.
