So powerful is the pull of television these days that another major film director has made the transition to the small screen.
Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby director Baz Luhrmann is currently gearing up for the release of his Netflix series The Get Down — a musical drama about the birth of hip-hop, punk and disco when New York was at the brink of bankruptcy. Take a look at the epic trailer below:
The wonderful Justice Smith (Paper Towns) plays the key role of Ezekiel while Jimmy Smits (Dexter, Sons of Anarchy) takes on Francisco “Papa Fuerte” Cruz — a South Bronx political boss.
Season one consists of 13 one hour episodes and will be released on Netflix this year.
