Baz Luhrmann is turning his attention to the small screen, teaming up with Netflix for a new musical drama.

The one hour 13 episode drama will be told through the lives and music of a ragtag crew of South Bronx teens. The Get Down is a mythic saga of transformation in 1970s New York City.

Luhrmann said in a statement, "I've been obsessed with the idea of how a city in its lowest moment, forgotten and half destroyed, could give birth to such creativity and originality in music, art and culture."

The series will premiere on Netflix in 2016.
