The show takes place in the 1970s, focusing on a group of South Bronx teenagers and how New York City gave birth to music genres like disco and hip-hop while teetering on the edge of bankruptcy.
Based on the latest trailer, viewers can expect the following once they get a chance to watch the whole show:
►Singing and dancing
► Flirting conducted through seductive rhyme schemes
►A rap song that probably includes a bad word, but the characters abruptly stop talking right before it sounds like they are about to finish saying the bad word, so it's hard to be absolutely sure
"The Get Down" will debut its first six episodes on Aug. 12.
