EMMY(R)-WINNING COMEDY SERIES "SILICON VALLEY" RETURNS FOR ITS TEN-EPISODE THIRD SEASON APRIL 24 ON HBO
On the heels of Pied Piper's legal victory, Richard has been ousted as CEO and is offered the diminished role of CTO, while the rest of his team - Erlich, Jared, Dinesh and Gilfoyle - faces the question of just how far their loyalty extends. With a new no-nonsense CEO hell-bent on transforming everything from Pied Piper's offices to its business agenda, the guys must find a way to triumph in the war of Art vs. Commerce, negotiating the many competing interests along the way.
Meanwhile, as Gavin Belson works to rehabilitate Hooli's image following his blunders, Big Head finds himself in a new partnership, and at Raviga, Laurie holds her cards close to the vest and Monica tries to look out for Pied Piper's best interests.
The Emmy(R)-winning and Golden Globe(R)-nominated series SILICON VALLEY takes a comic look at the modern-day epicenter of the high-tech gold rush, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success.
