Global Casting Call Announced for Baz Luhrmann's Netflix Musical Drama The Get Down

26 February 2015 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

The Get Dow,N a new Netflix Original Series from visionary director Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby), will premiere exclusively on Netflix in all territories in 2016. 1970s New York City – broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped -- dying. Consigned to rubble, a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are nothings and nobodies with no one to shelter them – except each other, armed only with verbal games, improvised dance steps, some magic markers and spray cans. From Bronx tenements, to the SoHo art scene; from CBGBs to Studio 54 and even the glass towers of the just-built World Trade Center, The Get Down is a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco -- told through the lives and music of the South Bronx kids who »

Theatre Review: Beautiful: The Carole King Musical

25 February 2015 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Marc Bruni

Starring: Katie Brayben, Alan Morrissey, Lorna Want, Ian McIntosh, Glynis Barber, Gary Trainor.

Synopsis: The story of Carole King’s rise from writer of some of the world’s greatest songs, to an established artist in her own right

The jukebox musical is something I usually detest. Although it reached a peak with Moulin Rouge nearly 15 years ago, now we have countless musicals based on songs from a single artist. Queen, The Kinks, Franki Valli and the Four Seasons, and Abba are just some of the groups that have seen their songs strung together, and many songs being forced into non-related situations. Mamma Mia was the absolute worst of all, revelling in the fact that fans would shell out money for a greatest hits compilation of covers by lesser talented individuals.

However, it must also be acknowledged that although these musicals are taking up space that could be occupied by original shows, »

Quiz: Best Picture Oscar winners

23 February 2015 8:45 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

That’s it.  It’s over.  A winner has been crowned.  Birdman joins the illustrious ranks of Best Picture winners like The Godfather, On the Waterfront, Titanic, and uh, Crash.

With Aljeandro Gonzalez Inarritu's backstage drama taking home the top prize, and claiming additional awards for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography, only time will tell if it is remembered and revered the same way we now look back on The Sound of Music, Gone with the Wind, and Annie Hall. Or, in time, will leave us scratching our heads like the aforementioned Crash, A Beautiful Mind, or Shakespeare in Love whose repeat value and hindsight show that there may have been more deserving winners in those years:Brokeback Mountain, Capote, Saving Private Ryan, Life is Beautiful, Gosford Park and Moulin Rouge all lost out in their respective years.

The Academy Awards have now awarded 87 Best Picture winners. »

Baz Luhrmann & RCA Records Hook Up For Netflix Series ‘The Get Down’

21 February 2015 3:39 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Love or hate him, Luhrmann has made an indelible impact on the film world with his very distinct take on life and, for me, has successfully taken that style to the big screen time and again. This time around, he’s moving to the small screen with this 70s-set New York original series called The Get Down.

What is it all about though? Well, it’ll be a 13-episode drama alongside Sony Pictures Television and will focus on 1970s New York City – broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped — dying. Consigned to

BAFTA Best Sound Winners Do Well at the Oscars

9 February 2015 8:21 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Damian Chazelle’s Whiplash won three BAFTA Awards at last night’s ceremony: best editing, best supporting actor and best sound. The film, which also received BAFTA nominations for best director and best original screenplay, is nominated for five Oscars. The three BAFTA wins coincide with similar Oscar categories, including best sound mixing. (Rather than have one Oscar category for sound, the Oscars are split into sound mixing and sound editing, and Whiplash is nominated for sound mixing.) Do these BAFTA wins bode well for the film at the Oscars?

BAFTA, or the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, used to hold the awards ceremony after the Academy Awards had already occurred, but since 2001, the BAFTAs have preceded the Oscars.

In the 14 years since the BAFTAs have taken place before the Oscars, only four of the 14 best sound BAFTA winners didn’t win an Oscar for their sound, »

Baz Luhrmann’s Musical Series The Get Down Heads To Netflix

5 February 2015 2:32 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Australian director Baz Luhrmann, who changed modern musical cinema with his 2001 hit Moulin Rouge, is making the leap to the small screen for his next project. Alongside fellow visionary David Fincher, who has seen massive success with House Of Cards, Luhrmann’s musical TV series The Get Down will debut exclusively on Netflix next year.

The streaming giant has ironed out a deal with Luhrmann to deliver thirteen one-hour episodes. This marks the end of a year-long period in which the helmer, The Shield creator Shawn Ryan and Sony TV worked in conjunction with Netflix to finalize details. During that time, a series of episode directors were sought, with Luhrmann signed on to direct the first two episodes as well as the finale.

Set in New York City during the ‘70s, the show will explore the South Bronx during that epoch and how the innovative minds of its youngsters spawned disco, »

Baz Luhrmann's 'The Get Down' earns a Netflix series order

5 February 2015 1:10 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Netflix has given a 13-episode series order to "The Get Down," a new music-fueled drama from Oscar nominated filmmaker Baz Luhrmann. Set against the backdrop of 1970s New York City, the Sony Pictures Television series will focus on the socio-economic conditions that led to the rise of punk, hip-hop and disco "told through the lives and music of the South Bronx kids who changed the city, and the world...forever." Luhrmann, an Oscar nominee for "Moulin Rouge!" and most recently director of "The Great Gatsby," will helm the first two episodes and the season finale in what will be his first foray into TV (or whatever it is that Netflix is).

Baz Luhrmann To Spotlight Inner-City Dance In New Netflix Series

5 February 2015 1:09 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

The latest big name to plan a series alongside Netflix is Baz Luhrmann. The director known for his flamboyant, bombastic productions will point his camera at 1970s New York City for The Get Down, a series that will debut on Netflix in 2016.

The Get Down will focus on a group of inner-city dancers who work their way from rags to riches in front of the rundown, decrepit background of 70s NYC. The focus on music and dance is important; as Netflix is quick to note in a press release, The Get Down will be Luhrmann's first "music-driven drama" since Moulin Rouge!, which was nominated for Best Picture at the 2002 Academy Awards.

Luhrmann will direct the first two episodes and the finale of The Get Down, which will span a total of 13 hour-long episodes. Luhrmann is also the series' executive producer. This arrangement is reminiscent of another Netflix show, House of Cards, »
