This emotionally dizzying teaser only solidifies the fact that Netflix is truly running the game when it comes to quality television:
"The Get Down" follows a group of teens coming of age in the South Bronx during the '70s, a tempestuous period in New York City history known not only for its violence and unrest, but also for its unabashed creativity and the explosion of hip-hop. But hip-hop isn't the only musical genre Luhrmann will explore in this lush musical drama.
"We're in a time, in '77, at the beginning of hip-hop," Luhrmann told MTV News back in August. "It's wasn’t even called hip-hop at that time. But there’s also disco -- disco was king in '77. Punk was emerging as quite the underground force. It was this amazing matrix of music."
The impressive young cast includes "Paper Towns" star Justice Smith (who delivers a sobering performance in the 3-minute teaser), "Dope" breakout Shameik Moore, Skylan Brooks, Tremaine Brown Jr. and newcomer Herizen Guardiola (who can saaaang). Jaden Smith will also appear as Marcus "Dizzee" Kipling, a psychedelically gifted young graffiti artist. Hip-hop pioneer Grandmaster Flash will not only guest star on the series, but he also serves as a producer and advisor.
"They are some of the great young actors of this generation," Luhrmann said. "In this show, they get to play all the strings of their instruments. You're really going to see them in a different light. I think people will be surprised, yet again, by what these young talents have to offer."
Honestly, it could be 10 hours of Herizen Guardiola singing and we'd take it.
