Silicon Valley Season 1 Premiere 2014 “Minimal Viable Product”

Silicon Valley Season 1 episode 1 “Minimal Viable Product” airs Sunday, April 6 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO.

Episode Synopsis: Silicon Valley Season 1 Episode 1 “Minimal Viable Product” – Attending an elaborate launch party, Richard (Thomas Middleditch) and his computer programmer friends – Big Head (Josh Brener), Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani) and Gilfoyle (Martin Starr) – dream of making it big. Instead, they’re living in the communal Hacker Hostel owned by former programmer Erlich (T.J. Miller), who gets to claim ten percent of anything they invent there. When it becomes clear that Richard has developed a powerful compression algorithm for his website, Pied Piper, he finds himself courted by Gavin Belson (Matt Ross), his egomaniacal corporate boss, who offers a $10 million buyout by his firm, Hooli. But Richard holds back when well-known investor Peter Gregory (Christopher Evan Welch) makes a counteroffer.

Show Summary: In the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, 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 humor to HBO in the new comedy series SILICON VALLEY. Partially inspired by Judge’s own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late ‘80s, the show kicks off its eight-episode season this April.
