HBO drops the full trailer for Bill Hader’s upcoming dramedy Barry, premiering in late March.
Debuting Sunday, March 25, at 10:30pm ET on HBO, Barry stars Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader. Been looking forward to this one.
Barry is a dark comedy starring Bill Hader in the title role of a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest who falls in love with acting while on a job in LA. Barry’s handler, Fuches (Stephen Root), hires him out to the violent Chechen mob in Los Angeles, led by Goran Pazar (Glenn Fleshler) and his right-hand man, Noho Hank (Anthony Carrigan).
Barry’s target: an aspiring actor who is having an affair with Pazar’s wife. Barry follows his “mark” into an acting class taught by beloved teacher/guru Gene Cousineau (Henry Winkler), and is instantly drawn to the group of students, particularly Sally (Sarah Goldberg). Although he wants to start a new life in this community of eager hopefuls, Barry’s criminal past won’t let him walk away. Can he find a way to balance the two worlds?
As well as starring in the series, Hader directs episodes of the show, marking his directorial debut. BARRY is executive produced by Alec Berg and Bill Hader; produced by Aida Rodgers.
