This comedy series follows the misadventures of introverted computer programmer Richard and his brainy friends as they attempt to strike it rich in a high-tech gold rush. They live together in a Bay Area startup incubator loosely run by self-satisfied dot-com millionaire Erlich, who lets them stay in his house rent-free in exchange for a stake in the projects they invent there. But when Richard develops a powerful search algorithm at his day job, he finds himself caught in the middle of a bidding war between his boss – whose firm offers Richard an eight-figure buyout -- and a deep-pocketed venture capitalist.
The first episode of season one will be screened in English with Russian subtitles and presented by Maria Lapuk, former Head of PR at The Internet Initiatives Development Fund. Maria will talk about startup culture in Moscow.
