While the major network announcements of the past few weeks certainly stole the spotlight, HBO has a few major new pickups of its own to add to its slate of comedies. Joining 'Girls' and 'Veep' on the network are a new 'Silicon Valley' dramedy from 'Beavis & Butthead' creator Mike Judge, as well as a San Francisco-based gay friends dramedy starring 'Glee's' Jonathan Groff.

Mike Judge has made a business of defining generations, be they high-school burnouts listening to metal like 'Beavis and Butthead,' 'Office Space' workers listening to their bosses drone on about T.P.S. reports, or even future generations of an 'Idiocracy' that nourished its crops with a sports drink believed to mutilate their thirst. This time, however, Judge is headed back to TV with HBO to define the 'Silicon Valley' generation, so what fresh spin could the 'King of the Hill' creator bring?
