The first trailer for Beavis and Butthead and Office Space creator Mike Judge’s new HBO comedy series Silicon Valley has landed online.  The show takes place in present day and revolves around the work of tech startups, venture capitalists, and tech blogs—but with a very heavy Mike Judge bent.  This first-look trailer is incredibly funny, as Judge’s sense of humor feels like the perfect fit for the tech world.  It also helps that the cast is filled out by skilled comedians.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The series stars Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Josh Brener, Christopher Welch, and Amanda CrewSilicon Valley debuts on HBO Sunday, April 6th.

Here’s the synopsis for Silicon Valley:

Richard (Middleditch) is an introverted computer programmer living in the Hacker Hostel start-up incubator along with his best friend, Big Head (Brener), pompous Gilfoyle (Starr) and dry-witted Dinesh (Nanjiani). These social misfits live under the watch of Erlich (Miller), a self-satisfied dotcom millionaire who lets them stay in his house for free – as long as he gets a ten percent stake in their projects.
After a failed pitch to billionaire venture capitalist Peter Gregory (Welch), Richard seems destined to remain at his job at the tech company Hooli, founded by the megalomaniacal Gavin Belson (Ross). When Monica (Crew), Gregory’s head of operations, and Jared (Woods), a Hooli executive, realize the value of the site’s compression algorithm, a bidding war erupts between Belson and Gregory, with Richard caught in the middle.
