Silicon Valley is a comedy series focused on the geek culture in the San Francisco Bay Area's tech paradise. Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleitch) is a stereotypically socially awkward nerd working as a software developer for a large technology company called Hooli. He lives in a house in Palo Alto with several other geeks including coworker Nelson Bighetti (Josh Brener), Bertram Gilfoyle (Martin Starr) a Canadian programmer who happens to be a Satanist, and Dinesh Chugtai (Kumail Nanjiani) a Pakistani born coder who grew up in the States. The house is a technology incubator run by Erlich Bachman (T.J. Miller) who is more interested in spending the money he previously earned for a successful app he developed on drugs and partying, than on helping the guys with their own start up ideas. Life and relationships become complicated when Richard creates a promising piece of software. Created by Mike Judge based off of his own experiences in the industry, the show has received positive reviews for its acting and topical, satirical writing.
