*Part Two of “The Get Down,” comprising five episodes, will launch globally on Friday, April 7th exclusively on Netflix.
The series picks up in 1978, one year after the events of Part One, according to the official synopsis. The sweeping upheaval of late 70s New York City finds an as-yet-unnamed new pop cultural force striking a new beat in the Bronx, while disco still reigns supreme. Young lovers Books and Mylene are caught in the swirl of a looming cultural revolution destined to change everything about their world – but they have this moment to make their mark. Amidst the backdrop of a bankrupt New York City, ruthless gangsters and money-hungry record label bosses, they discover it’s only their creativity and love that will carry them through — and that they’ll sacrifice everything for their music, and each other. Peep the trailer below.
The cast of the “The Get Down” includes Shameik Moore (“Shaolin Fantastic”), Justice Smith (“Ezekiel ‘Books’ Figuero”), Herizen Guardiola (“Mylene Cruz”), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (“Cadillac”), Jaden Smith (“Dizzee Kipling”), Skylan Brooks (“Ra Ra Kipling”), Tremaine Brown Jr. (“Boo Boo Kiping”), Mamoudou Athie (“Grandmaster Flash”) and Jimmy Smits (“Francisco ‘Papa Fuerte’ Cruz”).
