“Silicon Valley” began with main character Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) working at a major tech giant, Hooli, and building a music app. When the app turns out to contain an amazing compression algorithm, Richard quits his job to take an investment and build his own company. The show then follows Richard and his roommates/new co-workers as they try to set up the company, Pied Piper, and navigate all the obstacles (self-made and otherwise) the task entails.
The show is the brain child of Mike Judge, who won an Emmy for Best Animated Program in 1999 for “King of the Hill.” Judge created the show alongside John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, who both earned Emmy nominations working on “King of the Hill.” Judge serves as the co-showrunner along with Alec Berg, who’s earned several Emmy nominations as an executive producer on both “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”
Since debuting in 2014, the show has aired 28 episodes over three seasons and become one of the biggest series on the pay cable giant. It’s received 21 Emmy nominations, including three consecutive bids for Best Comedy Series and a Best Comedy Actor nomination for Middleditch in 2016. The show has won two trophies: Best Production Design for a Narrative Program (Half-Hour or Less) and Best Single Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series, both in 2015.
