The Nineties follows in the footsteps of previous CNN decade series The Sixties, The Seventies and The Eighties. Executive produced by Emmy®-winning producers Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman in association with HBO and Emmy-winning producer Mark Herzog, the eight-part series will highlight cultural and political milestones, from the birth of the internet to President Bill Clinton's impeachment that defined the decade.
Beginning with the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill hearings, the '90s saw a succession of racially fueled events from Al Sharpton and the Crown Height riots, to Rodney King and the LA riots, to O.J. Simpson and his murder trial.
In the early 90s while George H. W. Bush was still the President of the United States, major political events markedly changed the world. These included the end of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact, the reunification of Germany, Nelson Mandela's release from prison, the Persian Gulf War, and Bill Clinton becoming the 42nd President of the United States.
Terrorism in the '90s includes a bounty of devastating events including Timothy McVeigh's bombing of a federal building in Oklahoma City.
The ‘90s brought on the internet along with a dark side of the tech boom, including hackers, online predators and the proliferation of pornography.
From Nirvana to Dixie Chicks to Tupac, the '90s represent a decade of musical diversity that appeals to every musical taste.
