HBO renews Veep and Silicon Valley

Having already picked up Game Of Thrones for two more seasons, HBO today issued renewals to the series that have benefited from its lead-in, Veep and Silicon Valley, for a fourth and second season, respectively. In addition to being another sharp corporate satire from Mike Judge, as Deadline notes, Silicon Valley has already enjoyed HBO’s best debut for a half-hour comedy since Hung, as the network successfully gambled that Game Of Thrones viewers might enjoy watching a show about nerds. And while Veep has seen a slight dip in the ratings, creatively it’s coalesced into one of the best comedic ensembles on television. (And if that’s not enough to get your attention, Julia Louis-Dreyfus recently did this.) Their renewals ensure at least one more year of the comedy of people frantically gathering around computers.
