Utopia Falls, an original new series from Hulu, has received a new trailer. The series follows teenage candidates, hundreds of years in the future in a city called New Babyl, who are chosen to compete in a dance competition known as The Exemplar. For all the selected, it’s a chance for them to make history, but one competitor, Aliyah, views it as an opening to a brand new type of adventure. After discovering an archive full of hip-hop music, Aliyah and her friends adopt the rebellious spirit of hip-hop and fight against the government for the freedom of their society.
