"The '80s: The Decade That Made Us" on the National Geographic Channel is a six-part miniseries narrated by Emmy-nominated actor Rob Lowe. The cultural programming event offers an unprecedented look at the moments, trends, inventions, and culture that have shaped our world today.

The miniseries isn't about nostalgia; it's about the history of our modern world that spawned political, technological, cultural and social revolutions that began in the United States and went on to dominate the world. This cultural programming event is the defining biography of a generation. It's about a decade of people, decisions and inventions that changed our future, told from the perspective of the unknowing history makers who lived these iconic moments.

We worked out, worked harder, played harder and consumed more — because the 1980s was the decade when we went forward to the future. The first launch of the Space Shuttle triggered a technological explosion in global communications that gave birth to our modern love affair with smartphones; Madonna rolled around on stage in a wedding dress, sending shock waves through a celebrity-hungry world that can't get enough of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry today. These and other incredible stories reveal surprising, unexpected details and twists and turns from a decade you only thought you knew.

"The '80s: The Decade That Made Us" is produced by Nutopia for the National Geographic Channel. For Nutopia, Jane Root and Bruce Hepton are executive producers. For National Geographic Channel, executive producer is Brooke Runnette; vice president of production and development is Lynn Sadofsky; executive vice president of programming is Michael Cascio; president is Howard T.
