BIll Hader Barry Series Order HBO

Bill Hader's Barry Greenlit at HBO

HBO has another hitman on its hands: The premium cabler has ordered to series Bill Hader‘s Barry, our sister site Deadline reports.

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.

    Who’s HBO’s first Hitman? Just the Sopranos generally? I’m moderately facetiously confused?
