Netflix 2017 Series: The Get Down – Season 2
Netflix has released a teaser trailer for the second season of The Get Down, announcing that it will launch on April 7.
The hip-hop history series created by Baz Luhrmann and Stephen Adly Guirgis, which is supposedly one of the most expensive undertakings the streaming service has ever attempted (with a $16 million-per-episode price tag), is a mythic saga of the transformation of 1970’s New York City, told through the lives and music of a ragtag crew of teenagers from South Bronx.
The cast ensemble includes Justice Smith, Herizen F. Guardiola, Shameik Moore, Skylan Brooks, Jaden Smith, T.I. Brown Jr., Jimmy Smith, and others.
“We’re going to take that music from minor to major league” – says a male voice in the trailer, featuring people dancing in a club, dancers showing off dance moves on a scene, a man on a motorcycle, a choir of female singers all dressed the same, and an Afro-American DJ mixing and doing boxing moves.
