From the offbeat mind of Mike Judge (King of the Hill, Beavis and Butt-Head) comes a new season of the Emmy-winning comedy that takes viewers inside the lucrative world of Silicon Valley - and the socially awkward underdogs who try to navigate it. After taking the tech world by storm with their debut at TechCrunch Disrupt last season, Richard (Thomas Middleditch) and his Pied Piper team - Erlich (T.J. Miller), Jared (Zach Woods), Gilfoyle (Martin Starr) and Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani) - look ahead to a bright and profitable future, one that's immediately soured by legal woes and petty revenge plans from Hooli overlord Gavin Belson (Matt Ross) and his competing platform, Nucleus. At Raviga, the empire created by Peter Gregory, big changes put the pressure on Monica (Amanda Crew), who's torn between her allegiance to Richard and her job working under a new head honcho, Laurie. Meanwhile, the presence of Richard's departed longtime pal Big Head (Josh Brener) looms large, as Gavin decides to use him to his fullest potential. Filled with even more industry cameos, this season of Silicon Valley promises to skewer the tech world with even greater veracity and hilarity, as its heroes continue to fumble their way towards unimaginable success.

Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there's no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed's legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa. Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo-the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring. With Rocky in his corner, it isn't long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title...but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring?
