Silicon Valley is an American television comedy series created by Mike Judge, John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky which revolves around six young men who found a startup company in the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success.

Mike Judge (Office Space, Beavis & Butthead, King of the Hill) brings his irreverent brand of humour to the comedy series Silicon Valley, partially inspired by Judge's own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late '80s.

Silicon Valley features an ensemble of young comic actors. Cast regulars include Thomas Middleditch (Search Party, The Office), T.J. Miller (Mash Up, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World), Zach Woods (In the Loop, The Office), Kumail Nanjiani (Franklin & Bash, Portlandia), Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks, Party Down), Josh Brener (Glory Daze, The Internship), Christopher Evan Welch (The Master, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and Amanda Crew (Jobs, Charlie St. Cloud).

Richard (Middleditch) is an introverted computer programmer living in the Hacker Hostel start-up incubator along with his best friend, Big Head (Brener), pompous Gilfoyle (Starr) and dry-witted Dinesh (Nanjiani).

These social misfits live under the watch of Erlich (Miller), a self-satisfied dotcom millionaire who lets them stay in his house for free - as long as he gets a ten percent stake in their projects.

After a failed pitch to billionaire venture capitalist Peter Gregory (Welch), Richard seems destined to remain at his job at the tech company Hooli, founded by the megalomaniacal Gavin Belson (Ross).

When Monica (Crew), Gregory's head of operations, and Jared (Woods), a Hooli executive, realise the value of the site's search algorithm, a bidding war erupts between Belson and Gregory, with Richard caught in the middle.

Mike Judge directs four of the episodes; also directing are Alec Berg (HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm), Tricia Brock (HBO's Girls) and Maggie Carey (The To Do List).

The writers are Mike Judge, Alec Berg, Clay Tarver, Dan O'Keefe, John Altschuler & Dave Krinsky, Ron Weiner, Carson Mell, Jessica Gao and Matteo Borghese & Rob Turbovsky.

Silicon Valley was created by Mike Judge & John Altschuler & Dave Krinsky; executive producers, Mike Judge, Alec Berg, John Altschuler & Dave Krinsky, Michael Rotenberg, Tom Lassally and Scott Rudin; producers, Jim Kleverweis and Chrisann Verges.
