The man behind Moulin Rogue and The Great Gastby has a brand new show hitting Netflix tomorrow, and it's looking pretty epic.
The Get Down is a tale of New York City in the 70s and how the age gave birth to hip-hop at the heights of the disco era. Needless to say, this is a musical...
The show was created by Baz Luhrman who also directed the episodes. It stars Jaden Smith, Jimmy Smits and Giancarlo Esposito, with Herizen Guardiola as the female lead.
The range of content Netflix is churning out is pretty amazing, with their original programming being a heady mix of different styles and genres that no one else can really match. The teen sci-fi adventure stuff mixes with a musical romance, a politcal thriller, prison drama and documentary series.'
It's a pretty great time to be a TV fan.
The first six episodes will be on Netflix on the 12th of August 2016, and it's intended as the first part of season 1, with the other six episodes to debut later in the year.
