It’s fairly frequent data that HBO’s Silicon Valley picks the brains of these within the tech world to gas storylines for its extraordinarily humorous parody of what it’s wish to navigate startup land.
For Season 3, the present landed a biggie — Twitter’s former CEO Dick Costolo.
Costolo, who has a background in standup comedy, is spending at the very least a “couple days a week” within the writers’ room, according to the present’s creator Mike Decide on this BloombergBusiness interview.
When the interviewers ask Decide if Costolo is “bringing it,” with out hesitating, Decide fires again, “He certain is.”
Decide says that Costolo provides a perspective on the tech world, usually sharing tales that sort of blow their minds. He says they usually ask Costolo, “Hey, Dick, would this each occur?”
“He does have nice tales that I believe I can say — like going to China, and he has to purchase a separate telephone to make use of and throw it away when he leaves as a result of the minute your telephone connects to a cell tower, it’s robotically hacked, and so they can take heed to it when it’s off,” Decide instructed Bloomberg within the video.
The present’s creators giggle about snagging him — “I heard he was out of a job,” Decide stated.
HBO’s (*3*) doesn’t have an official begin date but, however as HBO cycles its reveals about a 12 months, it’s a secure wager it is going to be again on subsequent spring round March/April, sandwiched someplace round Recreation of Thrones.
