Looks like yet another new Netflix Original is on the way. 'The Get Down' will premier on the streaming service August 12th. If previous Netflix Originals are anything to go by this show should at the very least be worth watching. I'm not usually a fan of shows based around singing or dancing but given the shows linage I'll give it a shot.
Summer 1977. New York City is broken down and beaten-up. Armed only with verbal games, improvised dance steps, some markers and spray cans, this rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers will make a pact that becomes bigger than all of them and change their lives -- and the world -- forever.
