HBO DEBUTS ORIGINAL COMEDY SERIES SILICON VALLEY
HBO Latin America announced the premiere of the new original comedy series Silicon Valley on April 6th in the Caribbean, simultaneously with the United States. Created by Mike Judge, the series is set in the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success.
Stuck working part-time at a large tech company called Hooli, Richard’s obscure website, Pied Piper, seems to be going nowhere fast. But when two competing executives learn of the site’s novel compression algorithm, Richard finds himself caught in the middle of an extreme bidding war between Hooli founder Gavin Belson (Matt Ross) and independent billionaire venture capitalist Peter Gregory (Christopher Evan Welch).
Silicon Valley features a talented ensemble of young comic actors. Cast regulars include: Thomas Middleditch (Search Party, The Office), T.J. Miller (Mash Up, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World), Zach Woods (In the Loop, The Office), Kumail Nanjiani (Franklin & Bash, Portlandia), Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks, Party Down), Josh Brener (Glory Daze, The Internship), Christopher Evan Welch (The Master, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and Amanda Crew (Jobs, Charlie St. Cloud). Matt Ross (Magic City, HBO’s Big Love) guest stars.
Silicon Valley was created by Mike Judge, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky; executive produced by Mike Judge, Alec Berg, John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky, Michael Rotenberg and Tom Lassally; and produced by Jim Kleverweis and Chrisann Verges.
