More Nostalgia For NYC In The ’70s

Created by Baz Luhrmann, famous for films including “Moulin Rouge” and “The Great Gatsby,” Netflix’s “The Get Down” is a music-laden drama set in the South Bronx in the late 70s, as hip-hop is born in the New York borough. It stars Shameik Moore, Justice Smith, Tremaine Browne Jr and Skylan Brooks as a crew of teenagers exploring the musical upheavals in their neighbourhood, and Herizen Guardiola as Mylene Cruz, who aspires to be a disco diva in defiance of her religious family. The series will air later in 2016.
