Bill Hader’s Hitman Comedy “Barry” Ordered to Series at HBO

(via Deadline)

This will be the first time that Hader stars, executive produces, writes, and directs.

Bill Hader will star in HBO’s latest comedy series that comes from both Alec Berg (who’s worked on many of your favorite comedies between Seinfeld to Silicon Valley).

Called Barry, Hader will be a hitman who has grown weary of the hitman life and finds his way into theater and becoming an actor. 

Comedy where a hitman is trying to transition into a new life sounds like rich territory for Bill and the supporting cast of Stephen Root and Henry Winkler should be icing on the cake here.
