With credits to his name like Office Space, Beavis and Butthead, King of the Hill, and Idiocracy, I’m fully expecting for Mike Judge to deliver once again with his new show Silicon Valley. HBO has picked up Silicon Valley and it will debut the same night as the much anticipated season 4 of Game of Thrones on April 6th.
Silicon Valley follows a group of young, awkward software engineers as they try to hit it big. The trailer below hints at them hitting it big as we see them receiving multiple high priced offers for a stake in their company. If the trailer is any indication, we should be in for a treat with some high comedy. There have been comparisons to Amazon’s Betas which has a similar storyline, but I think Silicon Valley has more potential having a bigger budget with more established actors such as T.J. Miller (She’s Out of My League), Zach Woods (The Office, Veep), and Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks, Party Down). HBO usually produces on the comedic front and Mike Judge has a solid track record. As I anxiously await season 4 of GoT, I now have another show to look forward to as well.
