Menlo Park documentarian duo Kiki Kapany and Michael Schwarz of Kikim Media are releasing a three-part documentary all about Silicon Valley this month.

The documentary, "Silicon Valley: The Untold Story," will have its broadcast premiere on Jan. 28 on the Science Channel. Click here to watch the trailer.

According to Mr. Schwarz, the series explores the aspects of Silicon Valley that have yielded its growth as an epicenter for technological innovation and entrepreneurship. It features interviews with people such as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum, and former Google CEO and Alphabet chairman Eric Schmidt (whose family foundation is slated to set up shop in the new office building under construction at 1020 Alma St. in Menlo Park).

A Jan. 17 event scheduled to launch the series at the Computer History Museum was sold out as of Jan. 5. It is scheduled to feature a panel discussion moderated by Mike Malone with Mr. Koum, DFJ venture capitalist Heidi Roizen and entrepreneur Kim Polese, Mr. Schwarz said.
