Media Release: Thursday March 26, 2015
In the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, the people most qualified to succeed are often the least capable of handling success. Mike Judge (Office Space, Beavis & Butt-Head) takes Silicon Valley viewers inside the world of tech start-ups – and the socially awkward underdogs who try to navigate its lucrative potential.
HBO’s Emmy® and Golden Globe® nominated Silicon Valley charts the rising fortunes of Richard, an introverted computer programmer who lives in a “Hacker Hostel” start-up incubator along with his best friends.
Over the course of its 10-episode second season, Richard (Thomas Middleditch) and his brilliant but awkward Pied Piper team Erlich (T.J. Miller), Jared (Zach Woods), Gilfoyle (Martin Starr) and Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani), struggle through the trials and tribulations of growing their company, while still staying true to Richard’s vision.
After last season’s TechCrunch Disrupt victory, the guys focus their energies this year on finding funding and establishing Pied Piper in a crowded sea of competitors, all while battling an assortment of legal and financial woes and petty revenge plans from Hooli overlord Gavin Belson (Matt Ross) and his competing platform, Nucleus. At Raviga, the empire created by Peter Gregory, big changes put pressure on Monica (Amanda Crew), who’s torn between her allegiance to Richard and her job working under a new head honcho, Laurie.
Filled with even more industry cameos, this season of Silicon Valley promises to skewer the tech world with even greater veracity and hilarity, as its heroes continue to fumble their way towards unimaginable success.
See genius in a whole new light when Silicon Valley returns for season two premiering exclusively on The Comedy Channel Wednesdays from April 15 at 8.30pm just days after the US broadcast.
