Get excited! Mike Judge’s much-anticipated (by Betabeat, at least) comedy about Silicon Valley has begun filming a pilot in downtown Palo Alto. So the local news hounds at KPIX San Francisco sallied forth to take in the action on University Avenue and explain the show for locals:

“It’s a comedy about six programmers trying to create software that will earn them big bucks. That’s not really a comedy, that’s what people do down here all the time.”

Oh, it’s a comedy, alright.
