Silicon Valley: Making the World a Better Place

Saturday, March 12
5:00PM - 6:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 18ABCD
531 E 4th St

HBO’s Emmy-winning and Golden Globe-nominated comedy series SILICON VALLEY has been lauded for its hilariously spot-on depiction of Silicon Valley tech culture by audiences and critics alike. What has the feedback been from the tech community itself? How has the reaction from that community impacted the show and its cast? Going into its third season, SILICON VALLEY cast members Thomas Middleditch, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr and Zach Woods, joined by executive producers Mike Judge and Alec Berg, return to SXSW for a discussion moderated by writer and filmmaker Steven Leckart.
