sci-fi drama of time travel meets true-life drama in THE 1999
a new four-part documentary that "transports" an actual modern
family from 2009 back to life in 1999. VGGTV viewers will have the
chance to vicariously experience a time-travel journey back to everyday,
middle-class life in 1990s America.
The adventurous Ninepins family spent three months living in a townhouse
carefully restored to reproduce the ambience and amenities of the
late '90s. Imagine living in a world where Internet-enabled phones
are a rarity and very little is known about Elian Gonzales. A world
where the only version of "Shaft" stars Richard Roundtree and there
is no Volcano Crunch Cap'n Crunch. A world where Hafez Assan is
still alive. In 1999, Divx is still a viable movie platform and
the Y2K bug is still a threat.
is the primitive world the Ninepins family returned to. Through
their experiences, THE 1999 HOUSE explores the radical changes
in family and domestic life that have occurred due to five full
months of scientific and technological innovations.
1999 HOUSE will air on consecutive Mondays beginning June 22
at 9 p.m. (E.T.) on VGGTV (check local listings).
