Red Carpet Shelley’s summer hiatus is slowly coming to an end and there’s a few items I need to catch you up on (in case you missed it!). The new Baz Luhrmann series ‘The Get Down’ on Netflix dropped and is creating quite the buzz. The Get Down is a musical drama television series set in the South Bronx in the late 1970s starring none other than Jamerican Shameik Moore along with Jaden Smith and Justice Smith. Oh, did I fail to mention that Nasir Jones aka Nas is one of the executive producers?
If you’re unfamiliar with Shameik Moore he gained much notoriety for his critically-acclaimed portrayal of Malcolm in the 2015 film Dope, which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Indiewire included Moore on its list of “The 12 Major Breakouts of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival” for his performance in the movie. Continuing to make his mark, Moore was named to Forbes’ 2016 30 Under 30 in Hollywood and Entertainment.
I have followed Shameik all along the way, and I am so thrilled for his continued success! Gwan Shameik! Check out the trailer for ‘The Get Down’ and you can catch it streaming now on Netflix.
