Silicon Valley


HBO's "Silicon Valley" is satire, but that doesn't mean it can't also nail the authentic Bay Area tech experience.

With some financial stability under their feet, here's how much the main cast of "Silicon Valley" would be making in the real Silicon Valley - and how much they could make if Pied Piper ever goes public or gets bought for millions.
