Exclusive: HBO has picked up to pilot Silicon Valley, a single-camera dark comedy from King Of The Hill co-creator/executive producer Mike Judge and fellow King Of The Hill executive producers John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky. The three wrote the live-action project, which is executive produced by Scott Rudin as part of the overall deal he had at the pay cable network. Silicon Valley is set in the high tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. Judge will direct the pilot, which is slated to film in the spring. Judge, Altschuler and Krinsky executive produce with Rudin and 3 Arts’ Michael Rotenberg and Tom Lassally. Following the 2010 end of Fox’s King Of The Hill after 13 seasons, Judge, Altschuler and Krinsky, repped by Wme and 3 Arts, worked together on MTV’s revival of Judge’s 1990s animated staple Beavis and Butt-Head. »
