Bill Hader’s ‘Barry’ Will Debut in March

The HBO comedy series BARRY will debut on Sunday, March 25, the premium cable network announced today. Starring Bill Hader, Barry is a dark comedy that follows the world of a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest. Lonely and dissatisfied in his life, he reluctantly travels to Los Angeles to execute a hit on an aspiring actor. Barry follows his “mark” into an acting class and ends up finding an accepting community in a group of eager hopefuls within the LA theater scene. He wants to start a new life as an actor, but his criminal past won’t let him walk away – can he find a way to balance both worlds?

The eight-episode half hour series created by Hader and Alec Berg (, The Dictator, Curb, Silicon Valley) also stars Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, Glenn Fleshler, Anthony Carrigan and Henry Winkler.
