Bill Hader’s Barry has been picked up by HBO!
HBO has given a series order to “Barry,” a half-hour comedy starring Bill Hader, Variety has confirmed.
The series will star Hader as an ex-Marine who works as a low-rent hitman in the Midwest. Lonely and dissatisfied in his life, he begrudgingly travels to Los Angeles to kill someone and ends up finding an accepting community in a group of eager hopefuls within the L.A. theater scene.
Hader and Alec Berg (“Silicon Valley”) will serve as executive producers and writers, with Hader directing the pilot.
