King of the Hill creator sees new comedy pilot ordered by HBO

King of the Hill creator Mike Judge has had his new comedy pilot ordered by HBO.

Silicon Valley is a single-camera comedy that 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 in the coming spring with The Newsroom’s Scott Rudin attached as a producer.

The project has been developed by Ajudge alongside fellow King of the Hill producers John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky.
