A film crew was in downtown Palo Alto on March 12 to film an HBO television show pilot directed by Mike Judge.
Thomas Fehrenbach, economic development manager for the city, said HBO filmed "Untitled Silicon Valley Project," at several sites around the city.
According to numerous television news websites, HBO recently green-lit the pilot episode of "Silicon Valley," which is being directed by Judge, creator of "Office Space," "King of the Hill" and "Beavis and Butt-head."
The show is a comedy set in the high-tech business environment of Silicon Valley.
The filming held up traffic intermittently on University Avenue between Waverley and Webster streets during the evening.
There were also brief "roving" road closures in the morning and early afternoon on El Camino Real, Page Mill Road and East Charleston Road.
