The Saturday Night Live alum will star in and direct the half-hour comedy, which he’ll co-write and executive-produce with Silicon Valley‘s Alec Berg. The series will follow Hader’s titular character, a lonely former Marine who has become a cheap hitman in the Midwest. When he accepts a kill job that takes him to Los Angeles, he inadvertently finds himself part of a group of friendly aspiring theater folk.
The cast list includes: Henry Winkler (Happy Days), who’ll play acting teacher Gene Cousineau; Stephen Root (Office Space, King of the Hill), who’ll play Fuches, the man who pimps Barry out as a murderer-for-hire; and Sarah Goldberg (Hindsight) as Sally, Barry’s guide to the Los Angeles theater scene.
