HBO Greenlights Live-Action Series From 'King of the Hill' Co-Creator Deadline
HBO has given a pilot order to a live-action dark comedy from "King of the Hill" co-creator Mike Judge, reports Deadline.com.
The pilot, "Silicon Valley," also comes from fellow "King of the Hill" executive producers John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky. The project is set in modern Silicon Valley, "where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success," the story says.
Judge will direct the pilot, and Scott Rudin is also slated to executive produce along with Judge, Altschuler and Krinsky, the piece adds.
