This is what the director had to say in a recent interview with Vulture:
The show will use music from the past, as well as original compositions Because Sony is producing The Get Down, Well have lots of recognizable, classic cuts on the soundtrack, Luhrmann says. We will be using very authentic music from the time. But our young characters and this is crucial: Their songs are from a mythological musical group. So we have to see them create their own music ... Thats important because we want to show an aspirational story. Were going to use music as a way of allowing the world to be very authentic. Writing has already begun, with some well-known scribes attached. Im hunkered down in my little white box around Chinatown, writing it with a great team of writers. Luhrmann says. Among those working on the show, he says, are some who lived in the Bronx at the time the show is set, including Seth Zvi Rosenfeld (The Writing on the Wall). Author and journalist Nelson George is also on our writing team, Luhrmann says, as are Brooklyn playwright Radha Blank, Aaron Rahsaan Thomas, Sam Bromell, Jacqueline Rivera, and, as previously reported, novelist/TV writer Thomas Kelly. Weve spent several years doing quiet but very in-depth research, he adds. In addition to Luhrmann, other executive producers on the show include Kelly, Shawn Ryan, Catherine Martin, Paul Watters (Australia), Marney Hochman (The Shield), and Stephen Adly Guirgis (Motherfucker With the Hat), who is also a writer on the show.http://youtu.be/kEbRXzKu__8 "The Get Down" centers around the emerging music scene in the 1970's.
