‘The Get Down’ trailer released: New Netflix show set in the Bronx premieres in August

A new show coming to Netflix takes place in the 1970s in the Bronx. And music, unsurprisingly, plays a big role.

The trailer for “The Get Down” dropped Monday and features a cast of teens singing, rapping and what looks like falling in love, or lust. 

The series is created by Baz Luhrmann (“Romeo + Juliet,” “Moulin Rouge”) and stars Giancarlo Esposito and Jaden Smith, among others. 

“The Get Down” premieres on the streaming network on Aug. 12, 2016.
