DESCRIPTION:
(from National Geographic Channel's press release, November 2017) Hot on the heels of National Geographic's 10 Emmy Award nominations for Genius and the premiere of the critically acclaimed drama series The Long Road Home, the network today announced it has greenlit its next scripted project, Valley of the Boom from STXtv. The new six-part limited series will take an adrenaline-fueled ride through the culture of speculation, innovation and debauchery that led to the rapid inflation and burst of the 1990s tech bubble. Supporting the scripted drama will be select doc elements (similar to the network's critically acclaimed hybrid series Mars) to tell the true inside story of the dramatic early days of Silicon Valley. Valley of the Boom will be produced by STX Entertainment's TV studio, STXtv, for National Geographic along with creator, showrunner, director and executive producer Matthew Carnahan (Showtime's House of Lies) at the helm and executive producer Arianna Huffington (founder of The Huffington Post, founder and CEO of Thrive Global, and the author of fifteen books, including Thrive and The Sleep Revolution). The series will premiere globally on National Geographic in 171 countries and 45 languages. STX will distribute the series in China.
