On the next episode of HBO's new series SILICON VALLEY titled 'The Cap Table', after a celebratory party at the Hacker Hostel, Richard and Erlich learn that Peter Gregory won't pay up until they deliver a viable business plan that includes a slimmed-downed staff. A desperate Richard hires former Belson underling Jared (Zach Woods), and they set about trying to trim the fat. While Gilfoyle and Dinesh prove essential, Big Head's place in the company is less certain.

About the show:
Mike Judge ("Office Space," "Beavis & Butthead," "King of the Hill") brings his irreverent brand of humor to HBO in the new comedy series, which is partially inspired by Judge's own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late '80s.
The cast of "Silicon Valley" includes Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, Josh Brener, Christopher Evan Welch and Amanda Crew. Matt Ross guest stars.
In the series, 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.
