It's been a while since we've seen some new content from Mike Judge, the creative mind who brought us favorites like the cult classic film 'Office Space' and the animated TV series 'King of the Hill.' Judge returns with the new HBO series 'Silicon Valley,' which marries his experience in episodic television with his knowledge and background in the world of computer technology. The sharp and highly hilarious series, which premiered its first two episodes at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival in advance of its April 6 debut, isn't all biting satire of the world of computer programmers and coders trying to parlay their talents into superstar lifestyles a la Steve Jobs -- it's actually got a lot more depth of character and quite a bit of heart beneath its comedic veneer.
HBO gave us our best look yet at its upcoming tech comedy, 'Silicon Valley,' this past Sunday with a brand-new trailer for the Mike Judge-produced series, and now the network unveils another innovation. The ghost of Apple founder Steve Jobs makes a welcome return in the new poster for HBO's 'Silicon Valley,' as we meet our new icons!
HBO seems to have finally broken suit this Sunday without any new looks at 'Game of Thrones' season 4, but we've got the next best thing. 'Office Space' and 'Beavis & Butthead' creator Mike Judge has a brand-new comedy debuting on HBO this coming April called 'Silicon Valley,' the first full trailer for which arrived online!
HBO had plenty to showcase on Sunday night opposite 'The Walking Dead''s midseason premiere, including 'Game of Thrones Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing' and our first look at 'Veep' season 3, but why stop there? 'Office Space' and 'Beavis & Butthead' creator Mike Judge has a new geek comedy debuting on April 6, so take a look at the first official trailer for HBO's 'Silicon Valley.'
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. Preview HBO's new comedy lineup inside!
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?
