The highly anticipated Silicon Valley comedy from the mind of Beavis and Butthead creator Mike Judge has been picked up by HBO for a full season, according to Deadline. The show doesn’t have a title yet, but we already know it opens on “the shit-brown hills of Mountainview,” and stars Martin Starr of Freaks and Geeks and Party Down fame.
The plot of the pilot, as outlined by a script published by Quartz, is a tantalizing glimpse of what’s to come:
“… six programmers are living together in East Palo Alto, each working on software they hope will make them rich, from a system for policing music copyrights to an app that ‘gives you the location of a woman with erect nipples.’”
Give us a sweaty, screaming Steve Ballmer or a Jack Dorsey lookalike raving about his artisanal wheat grass enema by the end of the pilot and we’ll be hooked for the whole season.
