Brand New HBO Comedy Series “BARRY” Starring Bill Hader, Debuts March 26

Barry is a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest. While on a job in LA, he follows his “mark” into an acting class and is instantly drawn to the group of students. Barry wants to start a new life in this community of eager hopefuls, but his criminal past won’t let him walk away. Can he find a way to balance the two worlds?

The brand new HBO original dark comedy series BARRY, starring Bill Hader, kicks off its eight-episode season same time as the U.S. on Monday, March 26 at 10.30am, with a same day encore at 11.30pm, exclusively on HBO. Alec Berg (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”) and Hader (“Saturday Night Live”) serve as co-creators, executive producers, directors and writers.

Other cast regulars include: Stephen Root (“Get Out”) as Barry’s handler, who is alarmed to contemplate a future without his primary source of income; Sarah Goldberg (“Hindsight”) as a dedicated acting student who becomes the object of Barry’s affection; Glenn Fleshler (HBO’s “True Detective”) a Chechen mob kingpin whose killer instincts are (somewhat) tempered by a surprisingly sentimental side; Anthony Carrigan (“Gotham”) as the mobster’s brutal but unfailingly polite sidekick; and Henry Winkler (“Arrested Development”) as a pompous yet endearing acting teacher who takes Barry under his wing.

As well as starring in the series, Hader directs episodes of the show, marking his directorial debut.

BARRY was created by Alec Berg & Bill Hader; executive produced by Bill Hader and Alec Berg; produced by Aida Rodgers; consulting producer, Liz Sarnoff; producer, Emily Heller.

The series will also stream on HBO GO.
