Watch a new teaser for Baz Luhrmann's The Get Down

Baz Luhrmann's upcoming Netflix series The Get Down is set in the South Bronx in 1977, and that's mostly what its latest teaser focuses on. It's just 30 seconds long, packed with images of Cadillacs, graffiti, the subway, and summer smog — oh, and a new song from Nas. The only line of dialogue: "That's how we're gonna go down. Do or die."

When the show's first trailer premiered back in January, it looked like a disco-heavy musical drama, but for now most of what we know is that it's about a group of teenagers living in a near-bankrupt New York City. The Get Down stars Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Jimmy Smits, Jaden Smith, and Shameik Moore (Dope). It arrives on Netflix on August 12th.
