Watch the First Trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s Netflix Musical Drama The Get Down

Today, Netflix released a trailer for the Baz Luhrmann-produced Netflix original, The Get Down, about the rise of hip-hop and disco in 1977 New York City. The musical drama is self-described as “a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to a new art form.”

It follows the lives of six teenagers in the South Bronx, played by Justice Smith, Herizen Guardiola, Shameik Moore, Skylan Brooks, T.J. Brown Jr. and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. The series is executive-produced by Luhrmann and Nas for Sony Pictures.

The first six episodes of the 13-episode season will premiere on Aug. 12. Watch the powerful first trailer above.
