About the Show

The 90s, a time of unprecedented tech advances, the game-changing birth of Silicon Valley and, eventually, the 2001 dot-com bust. Now hear the stories of those who were there.

Featuring Emmy Award winning actor Bradley Whitford, Steve Zahn and Lemorne Moriss, this hybrid drama/documentary series takes you back to the time before Google and Facebook. To the time of startups and the infamous Netscape vs Microsoft “Browser Wars”.
