No one that have any respect for would ever balk at the idea of having more Mike Judge entertainment in our lives, so let’s all get on the same page and rejoice that HBO has picked up a comedy from the Beavis and Butthead creator that follows Silicon Valley execs during the dot-com heyday.
The show, so far untitled, has a murderer’s row of comedians, including T.J. Miller, Thomas Middleditch, Josh Brener, Lindsey Broad, Christopher Evan Welch, Amanda Crew, Angela Trimbur, ZachWoods and Kumail Nanjiani. But those guys will be pretty funny!
The tagline that has been bandied about here is “the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success.” Ugh. That describes every Aaron Sorkin project ever. Of course, it’s Mike Judge, so we needn’t worry.
You know, staplers, and whatnot.
