Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Kit Harington, Natalie Dormer, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner are back for the new season.
In addition, HBO says VEEP will kick off season three on April 6th immediately after Game of Thrones. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tony Hale, Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Reid Scott, Timothy C. Simons, Sufe Bradshaw and Kevin Dunn star in the Emmy nominated series.
April 6th is also the date of the premiere of the brand new comedy series Silicon Valley from Mike Judge, John Altschuler, and Dave Krinsky. Debuting at 10:30pm ET/PT, Silicon Valley “looks 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.” The eight episode season one stars Thomas Middleditch, TJ Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Josh Brener, Christopher Evan Welch, Matt Ross, and Amanda Crew.
Here’s the Silicon Valley plot, courtesy of HBO: “Richard (Middleditch) is an introverted computer programmer living in the Hacker Hostel start-up incubator along with his best friend, Big Head (Brener), pompous Gilfoyle (Starr) and dry-witted Dinesh (Nanjiani). These social misfits live under the watch of Erlich (Miller), a self-satisfied dotcom millionaire who lets them stay in his house for free – as long as he gets a ten percent stake in their projects.
After a failed pitch to billionaire venture capitalist Peter Gregory (Welch), Richard seems destined to remain at his job at the tech company Hooli, founded by the megalomaniacal Gavin Belson (Ross). When Monica (Crew), Gregory’s head of operations, and Jared (Woods), a Hooli executive, realize the value of the site’s search algorithm, a bidding war erupts between Belson and Gregory, with Richard caught in the middle.”
Meanwhile, the news magazine Vice has secured a Friday, March 14, 2014 premiere date for season two. The half-hour series Vice will air at 11pm with Vice Founder Shane Smith back as host.
