Netflix Original “The Get Down” Part 2 Get A Release Date & Teaser Trailer
Netflix’s music-driven, 1970’s drama “The Get Down“ is set to premiere part 2 of the series April 7, 2017. Part 2 is set to pick back up exactly a year later in the series after the mid-season finale in 1978 with Zeke (Justice Smith) and Mylene (Herizen Guardiola) caught in the middle of a cultural revolution as hip-hop continues to rise. The two stars continue to navigate life and the harsh reality of the world around them (bankrupt New York City, sketchy-money hungry record label executives, ruthless gangsters, rising drug dealers and the rival gangs) as they pursue their dreams to make it as a “wordsmith” and a “disco singer”.
“The Get Down” is a phenomenal story told through the lives and music of a ragtag crew of South Bronx teens, the series has an amazing cast such as Shameik Moore (as “Shaolin Fantastic”), Skylan Brooks (as “Ra Ra”), Tremaine Brown, Jr. (as “Boo Boo”), Yahya Abdul-Mateen (“Cadillac”), Mamoudou Athie (“Grandmaster Flash”), Jimmy Smits (“Francisco Cruz” aka “Papa Fuerte”) and Jaden Smith (Marcus “Dizzee” Kipling). In part 1, we really got to explore the lifestyle and examine the state in which New York City was in during the 1970’s. Burning projects, drug trafficking, the disco scene and the birth and evolution of hip-hop. Each character is portrayed and handled with such a level of care that it becomes apparently clear the motivations and ambitions of the residents of New York City.
The visionary Director and Executive Producer Baz Luhrmann (director of “Moulin Rogue” and “The Great Gatsby”) didn’t create this stunning, cultural masterpiece himself. Nas, Catherine Martin, Paul Watters, Thomas Kelly, Stephen Adly Guirgis, Shawn Ryan and Marney Hochman as contoured as Executive Producers for the series.
