You seem to know very little about how these work, but yet you keep doubling down on your incorrect response.

Back to this illegal and California business. Is this true?

I ask because I was watching House of Lies and Marty Kahn's non-compete plays a significant role in the 1st season yet he is LA based.

The rest of the show appears to be 100% factual. More of a dramatized documentary than say pure fictional drama. Did the creators miss the boat on this?

IAANAL, but I thought for it to be a legal contract it had to come with some form of consideration. So if they're paying you to leave and this is part of that, it's likely legal; if they're just making you sign it, it's hard to imagine it's enforceable.

California is very non-compete unfriendly. They're all but illegal there. I noticed that while watching the show. I just chalked it up to television liberties.

If you're signing it as part of a job offer (I think that's the OP's case), then that's the consideration. That's the normal process - as part of a job offer or part of a promotion/title change.

Just looked on wiki. If you trust wiki, there's basically a small number of cases (like when you sell a company) where they are legal by statute; and otherwise completely illegal. Did not realize that.

I don't see anywhere that says you can't go to a competitor in this non-compete clause. It just says: "don't try to take anyone with you or poach them once you've left for _____ time frame". Am I missing something?

OP's is different. Other noncompetes say that you can't work for a competitor for a specified amount of time.

These articles say that California's non-non-compete atmosphere and its cross pollination are a reason silicon valley beat Boston's Route 128 tech corridor.

Jimmy Johnís is a popular sandwich chain that sells fresh subs for $5. ... imposed an astonishing ... rule on its sandwich makers and delivery drivers. If these employees stopped working for the Jimmy Johnís restaurant, they were prohibited from taking another job with any restaurant that sells sandwiches within a three mile range.
