The television landscape is awash in reality tv as it has been for years. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, Bravo is bringing it’s brand of “reality” to Silicon Valley. A new show to be called “Silicon Valley” will follow the exploits of several type-a personalities as they do business in The Valley. The series is being produced by Mark Zuckerberg’s sister Randi and is already catching flack from some in the valley who think the show will make them look silly. Ya think?
The only thing i’m surprised about is that it took this long. Unfortunately, they’re going to have to bend reality pretty hard on this one as anyone who has lived in the valley knows. It’s no Jersey Shore. People take their dogs to work, stare at computer screens all day and talk geek. The show would have been much better if done during the Internet boom days when people got millions of dollars for an idea scribbled on a napkin, literally. Paper millionaires were being minted daily, and then, just as quickly, poof, it was all gone. Now that was drama.
