Nerds Get the Last Laugh in New Comedy
HBO, which brought us The Wire and Girls, is wooing us again with upcoming comedy Silicon Valley. The eponymous show follows young programmers trying to make a windfall in the high-tech capital without falling into the pitfalls of success. Created by Mike Judge — who showed off his flair in Office Space — the new comedy is a timely, irreverent look at the mecca of app developers and tech behemoths. The show is set to air in April, but one thing is for sure: The geek is officially the hero du jour.
