Created by Mike Judge (Beavis & Butthead), this eight part comedy is set in the high-tech rush of the modern Silicon Valley, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. A collaboration between Judge and Alec Berg (Seinfeld, HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm)and takes a comic look at the modern-day epicenter of the high-tech gold rush. Richard (Thomas Middleditch, The Office) is an introverted computer programmer living in the Hacker Hostel start-up incubator along with his best friends, Big Head (Josh Brener, The Big Bang Theory), pompous Gilfoyle (Martin Starr, Knocked up) and dry-witted Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani).
After a failed pitch to a billionaire venture capitalist, Richard seems destined to remain at his job at the tech company forever. However, when the head of operations realises the value of the site’s compression algorithm, a bidding war erupts leaving Richard caught in the middle.
