HBO has ordered a pilot for the Barry TV series. Saturday Night Live vet, Bill Hader, plays the title role. Hader is also co-writing, directing and executive producing it too, as part of his HBO deal.
Silicon Valley’s Alec Berg is co-writing and executive producing. Hader’s title character is a former Marine, working as a Midwestern hitman.
Barry […] centers on an ex-Marine (Hader) who works as a low-rent hitman in the Midwest. Lonely and dissatisfied in his life he begrudgingly travels to Los Angeles to kill someone and ends up finding an accepting community in a group of eager hopefuls within the L.A. theater scene.
What do you think? Do you like the sound of the Barry TV show? If HBO orders it to series, do you plan to give this hitman comedy a shot?
