Emmy® Nominee Bill Hader Stars in His First HBO Comedy Series
BARRY: SEASON 1
Available for Digital Download June 18
Three-time Emmy®-nominee Bill Hader (SNL) “gives a master-class in acting” (Indiewire) in the critically acclaimed dark comedy series, Barry: Season 1, available for Digital Download on June 18th. Hailed as “the best new comedy on television” (NPR), cast regulars also include Henry Winkler (Royal Pains), Stephen Root (True Blood), Sarah Goldberg (Hindsight), Glenn Fleshler (True Detective), and Anthony Carrigan (Gotham).
Barry (Hader) is a depressed hitman from the Midwest, and while on a job in Los Angeles, he follows his mark into an acting class and has a career epiphany when he discovers the intoxicating world of theater acting. Instantly drawn to the class and students, Barry is eager to leave his lonely, cold-hearted job behind, but as he attempts to start a new life in LA, his criminal ties won’t let him walk away, forcing him to find a balance between both worlds.
Termed as a “bittersweet dramedy that’s uncomfortably funny and simultaneously dark and tense,” (CNN) Barry: Season 1 is co-created and executively produced by Bill Hader and Alex Berg (Silicon Valley).
