BBC Two has commissioned a four-part documentary series, tentatively titled The Tech Transformers, which will spotlight how the last decade has unfolded in Silicon Valley.

The Tech Transformers (w/t) will focus on key, pivotal moments for these companies and the tech sector more widely. Across four episodes, the documentary series will tell the story of Silicon Valley through individuals immersed in this sector, as they try to make sense of rapid changes in the digital world while blazing trails into unexplored territory. It is slated to air in summer 2021.

BBC Two Controller Patrick Holland said: “Dan Reed is one of the greatest documentary makers working today and I am delighted that his exceptional talents are taking on one of the biggest stories of the modern age for BBC Two.”

Joanna Carr, head of BBC current affairs, said: “The rise of global tech companies and their founder-owners represents a profound shift of the world’s economic and political power, and I’m thrilled that Dan Reed will be turning his unflinching eye to such an important subject.”

Executive Producer Dan Reed added: “As a storyteller, I’m excited to re-examine the key lightbulb moments in the tech sector through the intimate and personal experiences of the people on the ground.”
