Mike Judge - he of Beavis and Butthead and Office Space - has done did a sitcom about Silicon Valley start-up nerds, and it looks pretty great. Dick jokes are probably the best kind of jokes, up there with fart jokes. The lower half of the body is more hilarious than the top half, unless you count puking, which is very funny too.
The series is currently pegged for an eight-episode season and was created by Judge alongside John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, and focuses around various techies and their startup sundries, all of whom live in the home of a dotcom millionaire offering free accommodations in exchange for a 10-percent stake in each person's startup.
One of the characters, described as an introverted computer programmer, manages to entice a bidding war over his search algorithm, which seems to be the focus of the first season. The show, by all accounts, is rather merciless in its focus on Silicon Valley and all it entails, both in reality and in stereotype, and is based in part on Judge's own past experience.
The show is set to debut on April 6, but until then a teaser trailer has been unleashed for all to enjoy. The show stars, in part, Thomas Middleditch, Josh Brener, Martin Starr, Kumail Nanjiani, Amanda Crew, Zack Woods, Matt Ross, T.J Miller, and Christopher Evan Welch.
