Mike Judge is going back to work. The brains behind one of the best workplace comedies of all time, “Office Space,” is once again returning to the well of punching the clock, this time with a modern age twist, with HBO‘s “Silicon Valley.” And yes, as one of our 20 Most Anticipated TV Shows Of 2014, we’re very excited for this one.
Perhaps the most promising thing about the new series is that it’s given a handful of people who aren’t household names yet a big chance to shine. The ensemble cast includes Thomas Middleditch (“Fun Size,” “The Kings Of Summer,” “The Wolf Of Wall Street”), Playlist fave T.J. Miller (“Successful Alcoholics,” “Our Idiot Brother“), Zach Woods (Gabe from “The Office“), Martin Starr (“Freaks & Geeks,” “Party Down“), Kumail Nanjiani (“Franklin & Bash“), Josh Brener, Christopher Welch, and Amanda Crew. It’s a pretty solid lineup.
And the premise, following a bunch of tech nerds who decide to launch their own startup, has a ton of potential too. We’re also glad that geeks on TV won’t simply be defined by the “The Big Bang Theory.”
So log on and check out “Silicon Valley” when it premieres on April 6th. Watch below. [Collider]
