Trailer: Bill Hader Is HBO’s “Barry”

HBO has unveiled the first trailer for the Bill Hader-led comedy series “Barry,” an upcoming 2018 original which saw its first two episodes leaked a few months ago in the much reported on hack of the premium cable network.

Hader plays 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.

Henry Winkler, Stephen Root as Fuches, Sarah Goldberg, Anthony Carrigan and Glenn Fleshler co-star in the series which Hader and Alec Berg co-wrote and executive produce. The series is aiming for a Spring 2018 premiere.
