Actor and musician Jaden Smith (The Karate Kid) is the latest to join Baz Luhrmann's hip-hop Netflix drama The Get Down, the streaming service announced Tuesday.

The Get Down will focus on 1970s New York — 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.
