5 Things To Look Out For In Baz Luhrmann’s New Netflix Series, The Get Down

The latest Netflix series launches today and, as with all Netflix OriginalsStranger Things, anyone?—you’ll want to binge watch all six episodes immediately (Part two will be out in 2017). Helmed by none other than showmaster extraordinaire himself, The Get Down is about the rise of hip-hop and the last days of disco, as seen through the eyes of a group of teenagers from the Bronx. Set in the 1970s, it’s a magical maelstrom of bright lights, street grit, breakneck beats, insane dance numbers and, of course, amazing clothes. Here’s what you can look forward to watching … and then discussing with the rest of the world once you’re done.

The Get Down will be available for streaming for all Netflix members in Singapore on Friday, 12 August, 2016 at 3pm.

Get a first look at the upcoming show in the trailer below:
