HBO has released the teaser trailer for its upcoming serial jab at the tech world: Silicon Valley. The series is a half-hour show currently pegged for an eight-episode season, coming from television mastermind Mike Judge, the man behind King of the Hill and Beavis and Butt-Head.

Silicon Valley focuses around various techies and their startup sundries, all of whom live in the home of a dotcom millionaire offering free accommodations in exchange for a 10-percent stake in each person's startup. One of the residents, an introverted computer programmer, manages to entice a bidding war over his search algorithm.

The show is set to debut on April 6.
