The sitcom Silicon Valley is set to premiere this Sunday on HBO. It tackles the story of six programmers who live together and aim to make a big break in Silicon Valley. Its initial season will be made up of eight episodes.
One of its main characters played by newbie actor Thomas Middleditch is one of the genius introverts in the group. He somehow channels the younger version of the real life Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. He lives in a start up incubator with the rest of the programmers and developed a compression algorithm for his own website.
Other stars included in the cast are T.J. Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, and Martin Starr.
