HBO Orders Pilot of Bill Hader Hitman Comedy “Barry”

(via Deadline)

Bill Hader as a lonely hitman finding himself amongst theater folk in LA might just be good enough for a greenlight as far as we’re concerned.

While Veep and Girls are getting into their latter seasons, HBO is readying itself for its next few comedy series in the years to come. The Duplass Brothers’ Animals is set to premiere at the end of the month and adding a pilot of Hader starring in a hitman comedy sounds like a pretty great addition to their development slate.

The project, Barry, was co-written by Hader and Alec Berg, who we hope you know from Silicon Valley and Curb Your Enthusiasm, and we sincerely hope that it makes it air just to see what the two have cooking.
