With around a month until we see the premiere episode, HBO is starting to roll out more and more promotional material for their upcoming series Silicon Valley. The series comes from fan favorite Mike Judge who is most famous for giving the world Beavis and Butt-Head as well as King of the Hill.
Jusdge is venturing into the world of live-action television though, as he’s only gone to this territory before with films like Office Space and Extract.
Here’s an overview of what Silicon Valley will be about when it premiere in April:
“In the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. Mike Judge (“Office Space,” “Beavis & Butthead,” “King of the Hill”) brings his irreverent brand of humor to HBO in the new comedy series SILICON VALLEY. Partially inspired by Judge’s own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late ‘80s, the show kicks off its eight-episode season this April.”
The series is getting a pretty amazing lead-in as well, with Silicon Valley being placed at the tail end of HBO’s loaded Sunday night lineup. While not directly following Game of Thrones, the show will be following the award-winning and highly watched series Veep, which means HBO has set Silicon Valley up to succeed.
