Mike Judge is returning to television in a big way this April. Last night, before delighting in the aphorisms of Rust Cohle, HBO viewers got a glimpse of Judge’s new series with the first ever trailer.
Titled Silicon Valley, the show follows Richard, a computer programmer that gets caught in the middle of a bidding war over a sophisticated algorithm he’s written. Richard is portrayed by Thomas Middleditch, who leads an ensemble cast that includes the familiar faces of comedians T.J. Miller, Martin Starr and Kumail Nanjiani. The group must decide whether to take one of the bids, or start their own company. Given that this is a sitcom set to air eight episodes starting April 6, I’m sure you can guess which they choose.
