You’ve binge-watched the fourth season of Orange Is the New Black and now there’s a big hole in your rotation. Now what are you gonna do? Director Baz Luhrman has an idea.
The Great Gatsby director has teamed up with Netflix for a project called The Get Down, and they’re getting ready to take you waaay back to Bronx life in the ’70s.
You might have peeped a trailer for the show during the 2016 BET Awards while you were piecing your emotions back together between Prince’s tributes and Jesse Williams’ speech. Well, it instantly grabbed our attention. And getting Nas to rap over the action pulled us in that much quicker.
If you missed it though, check it out above.
According to ScreenCrush, the plot of the show centers around a group of kids from the South Bronx. A synopsis of The Get Down pegs it as “a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk, and disco.” That vibe definitely comes across in the extended trailer released earlier this year:
The Get Down doesn’t debut until August, but we will definitely be tuning in when it hits Netflix.
