In this dark comedy series, a depressed hitman (Bill Hader) has a career epiphany when he discovers the intoxicating world of LA theater acting, but his criminal ties won’t let him walk away.

A dark comedy starring Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live, Trainwreck), who created and executive produced the series along with Alec Berg (HBO’s Silicon Valley), Barry focuses on a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest (Hader, in the title role) who falls in love with acting while on a job in LA. Barry’s handler, Fuches (Stephen Root), hires Barry out to the deeply 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 Barry is instantly drawn to the group of acting students, particularly Sally (Sarah Goldberg). 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?
