Washington, U.S. – National Geographic Channel (NGC) has announced the network’s next miniseries event, The ’90s: The Last Great Decade? following its successful three-night, six-hour event ’80s: The Decade That Made Us.
The miniseries will celebrate the people, the inventions and the
decisions that shaped the current world, told from the perspective of notable history makers, celebrities, sports stars, politicians and musicians who lived these iconic moments. Partnering again with Nutopia, The ’90s will be another multipart series premiering in 2014 on National Geographic Channels globally.
“Similar to The ’80s: The Decade That Made Us, our goal is to create the defining biography of another generation as told
through unexpected game changers, history makers, world leaders and entertainers of the ’90s,” said Alan Eyres, Senior Vice President of Programming and Development. “Nutopia proved to be an amazing creative partner and we want to recreate the success on the next groundbreaking, cinematic special event. And
maybe I will grow out my Beverly Hills, 90210 sideburns again.”
Jane Root, executive producer at Nutopia will be joined by Peter Lovering, executive producer from The ’80s: The Decade That Made Us. Fred Hepburn will be the supervising producer for Nutopia. For National Geographic Channels, Erik Nelson is executive producer; Alan Eyres is senior vice president, programming and development; Lynn Sadofsky is vice president, production and development; and president is Howard T.
