Remember when we argued that Netflix owes Black folks a series because we made “Netflix and chill” a thing? Well, looks like our prayers have been answered.
Wednesday, the streaming service rolled out the first trailer for its new dramatic series, “The Get Down,” and it’s full of melanin!
Set in New York City in the 1970s, “The Get Down” follows the lives and music of a group of teens from South Bronx just as hip hop was beginning. According to Netflix, the series “is a mythic saga of the transformation of 1970s New York City.”
“The Get Down” stars a host of newcomers, including Justice Smith, Shameik Moore, Skylan Brooks, Tremaine Brown, Jr., Herizen Guardiola, Yahya Abdul-Mateen, and even Jaden Smith.
“The Get Down” will hit Netflix later this year, but check out the first trailer below.
