With more and more respected film directors delving into streaming series, Baz Luhrmann has decided he should finally accept the modernity that's already been embraced by a 79-year-old, old-time jazz-obsessed guy. The Great Gatsby filmmaker is headed to Netflix with a 13-episode, hour-long drama from Sony Pictures Television. Titled The Get Down, Luhrmann's series will reportedly be "told through the lives and music of a ragtag crew of South Bronx teens," as told through the middle-aged white Australian who made Moulin Rouge. It won't come out until 2016, but Netflix has already released a teaser to give a feel for the tone they're going for. Have a look below to see whether or not that tone is a b-boying Leonardo DiCaprio.
