The first season of HBO’s comedy series Silicon Valley will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Wednesday July 16th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by Mike Judge and Alec Berg, Silicon Valley follows Richard (Thomas Middleditch), an introverted computer programmer living in the Hacker Hostel start-up incubator along with his best friend, Big Head (Josh Brener), pompous Gilfoyle (Martin Starr) and dry-witted Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani). These social misfits live under the watch of Erlich (T.J. 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 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.
