Filming for an HBO comedy will get underway in downtown Palo Alto today, forcing the closure of a busy street.

University Avenue between Waverley and Webster Streets will be closed to traffic between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m., but businesses will remain open.

Crews are scheduled to film a comedy pilot show based on Silicon Valley. Mike Judge, the creator of "Beavis and Butt-Head" and "King of the Hill" is said to be behind the effort.
