The six-part series on the early 1990s tech boom (and bust) works because, "it turns out that the missing ingredient in that hard-to-translate format is this: being cheeky," says Tim Goodman. "Valley of the Boom won't be for everyone, because it unapologetically rips up how a story should be told and takes the everything-and-the-kitchen-sink approach to a very important (and often funny and mind-blowingly relevant and revolutionary) moment in business and cultural history, and has a lot of fun with it. And guess what? That fun is contagious." ALSO: Valley of the Boom is a frustrating dud.

Nat Geo’s Valley of the Boom will look back at the Silicon Valley tech boom and bust of the 1990s
Arianna Huffington will serve as an executive producer on the part-scripted/part-documentary series that will consist of six episodes. “We wanted to make something as disruptive and exciting as the people and the tech that came out of the Valley during this period, so this is a wild, hybridized, rule-breaking look at a truly remarkable time and place,” says creator Matthew Carnahan.
