HBO Announces Premiere Date for New Comedy 'Barry' Starring Bill Hader

HBO has today announced a premiere date for its new original comedy series Barry starring Bill Hader.

The 8-episode first season of the comedy will begin on Sunday, March 25 at 10:30/9:30c.

The dark comedy stars Hader as a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest. Lonely and dissatisfied in his life, he reluctantly travels to Los Angeles to execute a hit on an aspiring actor. Barry follows his "mark" into an acting class and ends up finding an accepting community in a group of eager hopefuls within the LA theater scene. He wants to start a new life as an actor, but his criminal past won't let him walk away - can he find a way to balance both worlds?

The cast also features Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, Glenn Fleshler, Anthony Carrigan and Henry Winkler.

Hader co-created and executive produces the series with Alec Berg.
