"The '90s: The Last Great Decade?" is a TV miniseries documentary on National Geographic Channel that is narrated by Rob Lowe and comes on the heels of the success of "The '80s: The Decade That Made Us."

The popularity of email, the beginning of the Human Genome Project, grunge music, women in high office, the Clinton era, "The Rachel" haircut and a "Friends" phenomenon. Two decades have passed since the 1990s — the final pre-9/11 era, and "The '90s" will celebrate the people, the inventions and the decisions that shaped our current world, told from the perspective of notable history makers, celebrities, sports stars, politicians and musicians who lived these iconic moments. In this landmark series, we'll take a look at a period known for unprecedented peace and prosperity — arguably the last time the United States reigned on the global stage — a time of innocence and innovation in a pre-9/11 world. We'll also satisfy an urge for nostalgia with classic '90s music, scenes from iconic movies and TV shows, best of fashion and key sports moments. The decade included a turn to counterculture and retro style, widespread proliferation of new media, a revolution in sports marketing, a record number of women elected to high office and a political transition from the Reaganomics of the 1980s to the Clinton dynasty that still reigns today.

"Now that I've put my '80s fingerless gloves away, I am excited to start production on a series that will bring new insight to the decade that spawned Harry Potter, The Spice Girls, women in power cabinet positions, the Hubble Telescope and MP3s," said Jane Root, executive producer, Nutopia. "The miniseries event will be fun and entertaining, but it will also expand the understanding of the decade in smart and surprising ways."

"The '90s: The Last Great Decade?" is produced by Nutopia. Jane Root and Peter Lovering are executive producers. Supervising producer for Nutopia is Fred Hepburn. 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. Owens.
