The Get Down – Netflix

Known for his award winning, visually stunning and music-centric feature films that have grossed close to one billion dollars worldwide, Oscar nominated director/writer/producer Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby, Romeo + Juliet) is now set to mount his first ever television series and a nationwide casting call has been announced for several roles in what is sure to be one of the most brilliant productions ever brought to the medium.

a tremendously heady time in NYC and focus on the beginnings of hip-hop and punk music amidst the decay of the once proud city due to surges in crime and violence. With lush landscape and moving music, The Get Down will show the power of art and the ability to grow great beauty from great turmoil. Mr. Luhrmann has committed to direct select episodes along with his producing duties which he will share with an amazing creative team led by Emmy nominee Shawn Ryan (The Shield, The Unit, Mad Dogs) along with  Thomas Kelly (Blue Bloods), Paul Watters (Australia) and Marney Hochman (The Chicago Code).

  5. Sabrina

    I think ill get for a role in Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down, because i wass born in the 2000’s but i feel like i have a really strong conections to the 60’s ,70’s, 80’s, 90’s. My mom would always listen to old music and watch movies like dirty dancing and movies with dates back in the 50’s and i love that. I wish i was born in that time period. Im not musically talent but my English teacher sayd i would do great in acting. I tried getting apart of of the acting business but they tried samming me and my mother. So im stuck and i want to be able to put smiles on peoples faces. Acting for me wouldnt be about the fame nor would it be about the money but i would be about what i love. Acting is what im will to try and get out of my comfurt zone and i hope youll help me and i could help you, thank you.

  23. Rose Kiernan


    My name is Rose Kiernan and i’m 33 years old. I’m the VP of a sporting goods company, but my alter ego life consists of being in a breakdancing/hip hop crew. I was a gymnast for 19 years and once that career ended, I needed something to train for again, so I began dancing after work each day and have never looked back. My crew does a number of performances, paid gigs, battles, etc.

    Dance has completely changed my life and it’s something that fills my soul. The people, the community.. everything about it makes me inspired and happy. I am business suit by day and flat brim hat by night 🙂 While I love working hard in the corporate world, I would love to put as much work into something that makes my soul smile and this sounds like that type of production.

    Im 5 ft 3, 105 pounds, brown (ombre) hair, and green eyes. I would love the opportunity to be considered for this.

    Hello my names Doan, I’m 25 and I’m a college graduate.
    I’m a Asian American and I think my taking part in this film in some small way would very much help the diversity of this film, and in this day and age minorities really need to be represented.
    I look younger then I am so I can play a younger age if needed.
    I have a lot of spunk and would add life to any film.
    I have worked in many areas of filming before including acting so I already know acting basics.
    Now that I’ve graduated I really want to give acting a try because it has always been a passion of mines.
    Thank you for the opportunity.
