21 April 2014 3:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The series was created by Armando Iannucci (In the Loop) and also stars Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky, Reid Scott, Matt Walsh, Timothy Simons, Sufe Bradshaw, Gary Cole and Kevin Dunn.

Silicon Valley is only three episodes into its debut season, but has already received accolades from critics and generated impressive numbers for HBO. Created »

Veep has been renewed by HBO for a fourth season.

The comedy series follows Vice President Selina Meyer, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who discovers that the job is not at all what she expected.

Though Twitter on Sunday nights is usually dominated by discussion about the excellent Mad Men and Game of Thrones, HBO is also airing a killer comedy block in the post-Game of Thrones slot with Silicon Valley and Veep.  As such, it comes as great news that HBO has renewed Silicon Valley for a second season and Veep for a fourth season.  The former is the new series from Mike Judge that revolves around a tech startup in the titular Silicon Valley, and though we’re only three episodes in, it’s quickly proving itself to be one of the funniest shows on television.  Moreover, Judge is offering up a weekly dose of brilliant satire that takes aim at our current culture of tech giants.  If you missed them, be sure to catch up on Allison’s recaps. As for Veep, the ensemble comedy remains as sharp and mean as »

HBO Renews 'Silicon Valley' for a Second Season and 'Veep' for a Fourth

21 April 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

You may not understand everything they say, but get ready for more vulgarity-laced gibberish of the political and tech variety. Michael Lombardo, the president of HBO programming, announced today that the premium cable network has renewed two of their critical hit comedies "Veep" and "Silicon Valley," both of which are currently airing Sunday nights. "Veep" will return for a fourth season and "Silicon Valley" will be back for season two.  "Silicon Valley" premiered well, thanks in part to a huge "Game of Thrones" lead-in. Indiewire has written about its strong potential as a mainstream hit for the network, and it looks like HBO has enough faith in Mike Judge's latest live-action comedy to give it at least one more year.  "Veep" is a presumed frontrunner for a few Emmy awards this year following Julia Louis-Dreyfus' win in 2013 along with Tony Hale, who plays her character's loyal bagman.

'Silicon Valley' recap: Richard tackles the art of negotiation

20 April 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The many annoyances of starting a business, any business, are well-fertilized comic turf, and "Silicon Valley" has managed to take broad swipes at quite a few in a short window of time. This week, Richard discovers the name is the thing, and while the business name he wants -- Pied Piper -- inspires near universal revulsion (Jared makes the point that the fairy tale "is about a predatory flautist who murders children in a cave"), he's willing to fight for it. I'm not sure if this week is more about Richard showing he has the guts to go far or simply proof that he has that asshole quality Erlich so values, but it was pretty funny nonetheless.  As we know, Richard wasn't able to cash Peter's $200,000 check last week because he hasn't filed the name Pied Piper as a business yet, and Jared has even worse news -- Pied Piper »
