In 1957, decades before Steve Jobs dreamed up Apple or Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook, a group of eight brilliant young men defected from the Shockley Semiconductor Company in order to start their own transistor company. Fairchild Semiconductor's radical innovations helped make the United States a leader in both space exploration and the personal computer revolution, transforming a fertile valley in California into a hub of technological ingenuity and changing the way the world works, plays and communicates. Silicon Valley premieres February 5, 2013 at 9/8c on PBS.
