A series premiering this weekend takes viewers back to the dot-com 1.0 era of mid-1990s Silicon Valley, before the iPhone and social media as we know it today, when the key players in the digital revolution included Netscape and TheGlobe.com.

“Valley of the Boom,” created by Matthew Carnahan, is a mixture of documentary and scripted drama that will air in six installments on National Geographic Channel starting this Sunday.

TVWeek Open Mic writer Hillary Atkin interviewed Carnahan to get the story behind the project and gain insights into the earliest days of streaming video and social media and how we ended up with a world dominated by Facebook, Instagram and Google.
