Mike Judge on 'Silicon Valley' Emmy nods and dreams that (thankfully) don't come true

11 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Before creating Silicon Valley— the new HBO comedy that Thursday morning garnered five Emmy nominations—Mike Judge says he “hadn’t had a hit in awhile.” Specifically, he was referring to a pair of high-profile 2009 projects: the ABC animated series The Goode Family and the Jason Bateman-led feature film Extract, both of which were received unenthusiastically by audiences. Despite those hiccups, flops have been the exception rather than the rule for the creator of Beavis & Butthead, King of the Hill, Office Space, and Idiocracy. So when it was announced that Silicon Valley was up for Emmys in Best Comedy, »

Californication’s Pamela Adlon on the Louie Rape Scene, Acting With Debbie Harry, and TV Recap Culture

2 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

On the latest season of Louie, Pamela (Pamela Adlon) delivers her first line —“Hi, stupid asshole” — right after literally kicking our antihero in the ass. “Why are you so mean to me?” he asks a few episodes later. “Why do you like it?” she replies. Louis Ck and Adlon — an Emmy winner for voicing 13-year-old Bobby on King of the Hill — previously shared acidic repartee as spouses on the series Lucky Louie, which HBO canceled in 2006 after one season (sample plot: Louie ruins a romantic weekend by calling his wife the C word). Before reuniting with Ck for Louie, where she’s also a consulting producer, Adlon began a seven-season run as bikini waxer Marcy Runkle on Californication, which concluded with Sunday night’s series finale.  We spoke with Adlon about the Louie scene that made us cringe, bar-hopping with Blondie, and reading porn penned by her dad.It’s been four seasons, »

Steven Soderbergh Brings 'The Girlfriend Experience' Anthology Series to Starz

23 June 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Starz today announced the greenlight of The Girlfriend Experience, a 13-part anthology series produced by Transactional Pictures. Inspired by the 2009 Magnolia Pictures film of the same title, Steven Soderbergh and Philip Fleishman will serve as executive producers along with independent filmmakers Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz, who will also write and direct on the series.

The scripted anthology series will feature 13 half-hour episodes.

The Girlfriend Experience explores the relationships of the most exclusive courtesans who provide their clients with far more than just sex. These purveyors - or GFEs (Girlfriend Experience) - share intimacies more common to romantic partners or husbands and wives, becoming quasi-lovers and confidants who are richly paid for their time.

The original feature, directed by Soderbergh and written by Brian Koppelman and David Levien, screened at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009.

Chris Albrecht, CEO of Starz had this to say in his statement.

Inside 'Californication' and 'Louie' Actress Pamela Adlon's Nsfw World

17 June 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When Pamela Adlon's oldest daughter was going into middle school, the actress suffered a mini-meltdown. Another mom had said that she allowed her children – a seventh grader and a nine-year-old – to watch Californication, the sexually explicit Showtime comedy series about debauched yet well-meaning novelist, Hank Moody (played by David Duchovny) and his equally depraved friends, one of whom is the professional pubic-hair waxer Marcy Runkle, played by Adlon. "I was thinking, 'How is she explaining "stunt cock" to her kid – or is she not?'" Adlon says in her »

Halo: The Master Chief Collection – 25 Legendary Maps You Need To Revisit

17 June 2014 4:10 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Microsoft

There’s an old saying about buses in London; you wait ages for one and then two come at once. The same apparently applies for Halo games on the Xbox One; we’ve waited what feels like ages (well, two years) and now we’re getting four at once. Rather than be bitter and cynical about this, we’re simply emptying our calendar from November 11th onwards and embracing the fact that Halo is set to take over our lives once more.

The Master Chief Collection had been rumoured long before Microsoft’s E3 presentation earlier this month but still – finally seeing it announced felt awesome. Running through all four campaigns will be an absolute treat (especially getting to relive Halo 2 in a new shiny coat of paint) but it’s the multiplayer details that have us wishing we could hibernate until November. The Master Chief Collection will feature every Halo map ever released, »

10 Awesome Cartoons That Grown Ups Can Enjoy

3 June 2014 2:06 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Cartoons historically have not been meant for adults (just ask your grandfather, who probably still stubbornly feels that way). Mostly, with some exception cartoons were simply made as amusement for children that were often made as cheaply as achievable. They were just cartoons, and nothing more. This way of thinking thankfully changed during the late ‘80s.

In 1987, The Tracey Ullman Show made its debut to critical acclaim, but almost no public interest. However the show would go down in history for introducing us to the screwball cartoon world of The Simpsons. After initially being featured in 90 second shorts on the variety show, Bart, Homer, Marge, Lisa, Maggie and the rest of Springfield were skyrocketed to irrefutable super-stardom. The Simpsons debuted in 1989 and the rest is history. The show would go on to change the industry perspective of what an animated series could be. The show prompted a tidal wave of adult cartoons, »

Silicon Valley Season 1: Mike Judge's New HBO Series Offers a Funny & Inspiring Glimpse Into the Tech World [Review - ★★★½]

3 June 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

Mike Judge could have simply directed Office Space and lived off that fame for the rest of his life, but when you couple that cult classic with his past work creating Beavis and Butt-Head and King of The Hill it's hard not to consider him to be one of the most steadfast comedic geniuses of our generation. Give him a half hour time slot once a week on HBO to poke fun at today's tech world and it's a surefire bet you have struck comedic gold. Silicon Valley is the comedy series that HBO needs in the wake of Eastbound & Down's departure. The show was one of my most hyped of the year and thankfully the results have lived up to my very high expectations. With a great cast and all of the wit and bizarre charm that comes courtesy of a Mike Judge product, Silicon Valley will definitely »

Silicon Valley Recap: “Third Party Insourcing”

12 May 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In Silicon Valley's "Third Party Insourcing," the satire and character-building were both exceptionally high.  It was also just a hilarious episode, and reminiscent of some of Mike Judge's other work (like King of the Hill in particular).  As the Pied Piper guys work towards the TechCrunch competition deadline, they're forced to bring in a ringer (Austin Abrams) who can help Richard with his blind spot, programming cloud.  Truths are then revealed that bring everyone back to reality. Hit the jump for why a fetus is better than you (maybe). Things are coming down to the wire for Pied Piper, and the small operation is having to confront the fact that they still are in need of more help.  Richard may have aged 40 years in the last seven weeks (according to his terrible doctor, played by the awesome Andy Daly), but he still doesn't know cloud.  For that, Jared »

Fox Shakes Up Sunday Animation Block in Major Schedule Overhaul

12 May 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox will shake up its Sunday animation block for the first time in nearly a decade next fall, pairing live-action sitcoms “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and newcomer “Mulaney” on the night with “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy.”

Suffering ratings declines due to an over reliance on aging warhorse “American Idol” and the now-canceled singing contest “The X Factor,” Fox said it would introduce new shows on nearly every night of the week for the 2014-15 TV season. The network formally unveils its new lineup today at New York’s Beacon Theater. (Full Schedule Posted Below)

Kevin Reilly, Fox’s chairman of entertainment, has articulated a strategy of being nimbler in the decision to order series, rather than relying solely on pilots produced in the traditional spring development season. And he has set in motion a year-round schedule of originals that calls for Fox to regularly air limited series that have big ideas and names at their center. »

Can You Guess Famous Lines From Office Space From Just a Gif or Freeze-Frame?

17 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

With Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley premiering on HBO to rave reviews, it’s the perfect time to celebrate his past work: Beavis and Butt-Head, King of the Hill, Idiocracy, and the most quotable of them all: 1999’s Office Space. Then why not celebrate with a Quote Quiz? The game works Hangman-style: You type in letters to fill in the quote that goes with the picture, but if you get more than three letters wrong, you lose that question. (If you're stuck, click for a hint on the upper-right-hand corner of each picture.) When you’re all done, make sure to share your score in your latest Tps report. I’m gonna need that by 5 p.m. On your mark, get set, quote! »

Behind the Counter at "Bob's Burgers": 5 Reasons Why This Show Is So Tasty

They aren’t advertised to the industry or the public, but a bright yellow sign ("Bob's Burgers Table Read") at the entrance to Bento Box's Burbank offices is visible from the street.Created by Loren Bouchard, best known for co-creating “Home Movies” on Adult Swim, “Bob’s Burgers”  is equal parts heartfelt and cheeky, a show that tests the limits of an ordinary premise with a cast of exceedingly eccentric characters.

Here is our unofficial five-step recipe for “Bob’s Burgers,” that we came up with after hanging out at a table read and chatting behind the scenes:Step 1: Bring together producers and writers that have worked together in the past.

Here's an exclusive sneak peek at HBO's 2014 Emmy campaign

12 April 2014 12:41 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

In a Gold Derby exclusive, premium network HBO has provided their Emmy Awards campaign for 2014 with category placements. One of the shockers in recent weeks was the news that "True Detective" would be competing as Best Drama Series. It only aired eight episodes earlier this year and will have a completely new cast and storyline next time, so many expected it to follow the anthology path of "American Horror Story" as a miniseries. Stars Matthew McConaughey, reigning Oscar winner for "Dallas Buyers Club," and Woody Harrelson, a past Emmy champ for his supporting work on "Cheers," are competing against each other as leading actors. -Break- It's Emmy war as 'True Detective' battles for Best Drama Series That is the only newcomer on the dramatic side. HBO's hottest new comedy might be "Silicon Valley" from creator Mike Judge ("Office Space," "King of the Hill" »

6 Reasons You Should Be Watching Silicon Valley

9 April 2014 12:59 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

I know it’s what we’ve all been waiting for with bated breath: speculating around the water cooler, seeking out every scrap of promotional material we can, and “borrowing” people’s HBO Go passwords. Yes, this past Sunday saw the premiere of the first episode of HBO’s new comedy Silicon Valley, from the people who brought you King of the Hill, Veep and Beavis and Butthead.

With a zeitgeist-y premise – a young developer stumbles across some fancy algorithm that sends two tech companies into a bidding war, amongst the app-crazy La tech scene – and an ensemble cast featuring some of the hottest up-and-coming comedians working today, Silicon Valley is almost preordained to be a hit.

Or at least I hope so, because based on the pilot the show has the potential to be both hilarious and bitingly satirical, with a look into the corporate culture of the »

Silicon Valley: an unmissable geek sitcom

7 April 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Louisa Mellor 7 Apr 2014 - 17:45

Mike Judge's return to workplace comedy, Silicon Valley, is sharply written satire that does more than poke fun at the tech industry...

Farewell the cigar-chomping Hollywood exec and his wheatgrass-juicing starlet, satire’s moved about 300 miles up the Californian coastline. Silicon Valley, with its herds of would-be Zuckerbergs, philanthropic billionaire bosses and trendy campus workplaces, is the new target.

Mike Judge, whose 1999 film Office Space established his antipathy for corporate culture, is back sending up the tech industry’s nauseating self-satisfaction and sticking up for the little guy. This time the little guy is Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch), a low-rung employee at Hooli - Silicon Valley’s caricature of Google - whose side project is discovered to contain a “game-changing” compression algorithm that puts him at the centre of a panic attack-inducing bidding war.

Should Richard take the millions he’s offered by Hooli’s vainglorious CEO, »

Watch: First Full Episode Of HBO’s 'Silicon Valley' Plus Review Of Mike Judge's Tech World Comedy

7 April 2014 7:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Over the course of his career, Mike Judge has always been a keen observer of the absurd, mundane minutiae of the work world. Of course, "Office Space" is his crowing achievement, pitch perfectly capturing the soul crushing ennui of working 9 to 5. Judge returned to the well with "Extract," something a bit more screwball, less focused and as a result, less satisfying. And while Strickland Propane of "King Of The Hill" was another opportunity to skewer working life, it was more of an added texture to the All American Hank Hill than a particular point for parody. However, "Silicon Valley" returns Judge full throttle to the arena of clock-punching, management and ambition, with the tech world setting providing a fresh twist, but with results decidedly mixed across the first five episodes sent to press. Season premiere "Minimum Viable Product"—now available in full on YouTube for the next three weeks (watch »
