The folks over at Kotaku.com fill us in on an upcoming video game documentary:
Today the Discovery Channel announced that it’s going to air a five-hour prime time documentary entitled “Rise of the Videogame.” It covers the entire history of the industry and has interviews with the likes of Ralph Baer, David Jaffe, Will Wright, Peter Molyneux and even some now-obscure names like Ken and Roberta Williams, the founders of Sierra Online. I should disclose that I wrote the treatment for this show and served as a producer on it alongside World of Wonder (the company behind Inside Deep Throat). As opposed to a standard “History Of” documentary, the series takes a look at how the social and political climate shaped games and game designers in the 70s through present day. The first episode will premiere on Wednesday, November 21 at 8 PM (ET/PT) with new episodes to follow every Wednesday night through December 19th.
Damn, I really need to get a DVR at some point.
