"Office Space" Director Films Silicon Valley Pilot In Palo Alto

New HBO series by Mike Judge lampoons startup culture and software makers.



    An HBO shoot is shutting down University Ave. in Palo Alto.

    The King of the Hill is aiming at Palo Alto and the office space of Silicon Valley.

    A new HBO show created by Mike Judge, the creator of "Beavis and Butthead" and "King of the Hill," is filming its pilot in Palo Alto, according to the Palo Alto Daily News.

    The show, "Silicon Valley," is about a group of -- you guessed it -- software makers seeking in cash in on Web 2.0's boom, the newspaper reported. For some reason, Judge has them living in East Palo Alto, though his filming was all in downtown on Tuesday.


    University Avenue between Waverley and Webster streets will be closed between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. from time to time as the crews film, the newspaper reported. There's no word yet as to when the series is expected to air.

    Got to do the pilot first, as they say in southern California.
