It's been a while since we've seen the extraordinarily unique talents of The Great Gatsby director Baz Luhrmann, but it looks like that's about to change with his upcoming Netflix series, The Get Down.

According to IMDB, The Get Down is a musical drama about a rag tag group of teenagers that run wild in the streets of the Bronx in the late 70s. Luhrmann has expressed that this was a definite passion project for him and that he has been involved with it for over seven years. Music will be the show's main theme and knowing Baz's history of music in his films, this seems like a perfect fit for him. He has also expressed his desire for bringing in veteran musical talent, but also undiscovered artists in the hopes of helping them make it big. Baz Luhrmann's new series The Get Down will be provided by Netflix and will be up for streaming sometime next year.
