Whitford, Zahn Lead “Valley of the Boom”

Bradley Whitford (“Get Out,” “The West Wing”), Steve Zahn (“War of the Planet of the Apes,” “Sahara”) and Lamorne Morris (“Game Night,” “New Girl”) are set to star in the six-part limited series “Valley of the Boom” from STXtv and National Geographic. Filming begins March 26th in Vancouver.

The story pulls back the curtain of Silicon Valley during the 1990s tech bubble and introduces the audience to the real stories of these founders’ friendships, rivalries, victories and failures.

Told with unparalleled access to the most groundbreaking and prominent figures in the tech world, the six-part limited series will follow the stories that made the history of the era.

Also starring are John Karna (“Lady Bird,” “Scream”) as Mosaic browser inventor Marc, and Dakota Shapiro (“The Affair”) and Oliver Cooper (“Red Oaks”) as Ivy League undergraduates who launched one of the very first social networking sites.

Matthew Carnahan (“House of Lies”) created the series and will serve as showrunner, director and executive producer. Arianna Huffington also serves as executive producer. The series will air in early 2019 on National Geographic in 172 countries and 43 languages.
