HBO has released the trailer for its upcoming serial jab at the tech world: Silicon Valley. The series is a half-hour show currently pegged for an eight-episode season, coming from the mind of television mastermind Mike Judge, the man behind King of the Hill and Beavis & Butthead, among others.
The series was created by Judge alongside John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, and focuses around various techies and their startup sundries, all of whom live in the home a dotcom millionaire offering free accommodations in exchange for a 10-percent stake in each person’s startup.
One of the characters, described as an introverted computer programmer, manages to entice a bidding war over his search algorithm, which seems to be the focus of the first season. The show, by all accounts, is rather merciless in its focus on Silicon Valley and all it entails, both in reality and in stereotype, and is based in part on Judge’s own past experience.
The show is set to debut on April 6, but until then a teaser trailer has been unleashed for all to enjoy (featured above, obviously). The show stars, in part, Thomas Middleditch, Josh Brener, Martin Starr, Kumail Nanjiani, Amanda Crew, Zack Woods, Matt Ross, T.J Miller, and Christopher Evan Welch.
