Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman and Mark Herzog, THE NINETIES is a seven-part documentary series that chronicles the cultural, political and financial impact of the 1990s in the United States. This series examines the presidencies of George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, technological triumphs and terrorist tragedies, the grunge revolution and hip-hop's ascendance, interracial conflict across America, and a genre-bending era of television. Plus, THE NINETIES combines archival footage and interviews with journalists, historians, musicians and television stars including Tom Hanks, Kelsey Grammer, Sean Hayes, Arsenio Hall, Darren Star, Alanis Morissette, Questlove, Lance Bass, Christiane Amanpour, Dan Rather, Madeleine Albright, Al Sharpton, and more. The series opens with a two-hour episode that focuses on television, highlighting shows from the '90s -- from FRIENDS to SEINFELD and SEX AND THE CITY to THE SOPRANOS.
