He added: “Nutopia proved to be an amazing creative partner and we want to recreate the success on the next groundbreaking, cinematic special event. And maybe I will grow out my ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ sideburns again.”

Cabler plans to debut “The ’90s” globally next year, in 171 countries and 46 languages.

Jane Root and Peter Lovering will exec produce “The ’90s” for Nutopia. For Nat Geo, Erik Nelson is exec producer.
