Silicon Valley has already been documented in its own reality TV show on Bravo, and now HBO is looking to use the same premise for a live-action series. Deadline reports that King of the Hill and Beavis and Butthead creator Mike Judge, along with KotH executive producers John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, will shoot a pilot for Silicon Valley in the spring.

The show is said to be a live-action dark comedy filmed with a single camera that will examine how "the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success" in the Valley. There's no guarantee that the pilot will get picked up for a full run, but Judge's prior work directing Office Space would seem to be good experience.
