Silicon Valley, A New HBO Comedy Series Created by Mike Judge That Pokes Fun at Startup Culture

The new HBO comedy series Silicon Valley, created by Mike Judge (Beavis and Butt-head, King of the Hill, Office Space), follows a group of programmers trying to create the next big thing in Silicon Valley. The eight-episode season is partially inspired by Judge’s time out in Silicon Valley as an engineer in the 1980s.

In the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success.

Silicon Valley stars Thomas Middleditch as Thomas, T.J. Miller as Erlich, Zach Woods as Jared Dunn, and Kumail Nanjiani as Dinesh. HBO has released a teaser trailer ahead of the show’s premiere on April 6th, 2014.
