In the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, often the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. Creator Mike Judge (Office Space, Beavis & Butthead, King of the Hill) again brings his impertinent brand of humour to HBO in the Emmy® Award-winning comedy series Silicon Valley.
Partially inspired by Judge’s own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late ‘80s, the show kicks off its eight-episode Season 3 Tuesdays from April 26 at 9pm on Foxtel’s The Comedy Channel Express from the US.
Following the dramatic ending of Season 2, the Pied Piper gang isn’t going down without a fight. Richard (Thomas Middleditch) is obviously upset as a new Pied Piper CEO has been appointed and he’s now just an employee of his own company.
Season 3 sees new character ‘Action’ Jack Barker (Stephen Tobblowsky) as Pied Piper CEO and new salesperson, Jan (Erin Breen) join the existing cast of Richard and his brilliant but awkward Pied Piper team, Erlich (T.J. Miller), Jared (Zach Woods), Gilfoyle (Martin Starr), Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani), and Monica (Amanda Crew).
Filled with even more IT industry cameos, this season of Silicon Valley promises to skewer the tech world with even greater veracity and throw a whole new light onto genius.
** Episodes 1 to 3 of Season 3 currently available in the HBO screening room for preview.
