'The Get Down' Bronx premiere: Grandmaster Flash, Rita Ora, more

The premiere of Netflix's "The Get Down" brought celebrities to the Lehman Center for the Performing Arts in the Bronx on Thursday to celebrate the series about some of the pioneers of hip-hop.

Set in the Bronx in the late 1970s, the semi-fictional show follows a group of teens, with a passion for music, who later become the rap pioneers Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five.

The first half of the 12-episode drama hits Netflix Friday.
