Sky Atlantic Sets April UK Premiere Date For Bill Hader’s ‘Barry’
Bill Hader’s new dark comedy series ‘Barry‘ has been getting rave reviews in the US and will come to the UK this April Sky Atlantic has announced.
Hader (‘South Park’, ‘Saturday Night Live’) stars as Barry, a depressed, former marine turned low-rent hitman from the Midwest. He’s tired of the repetitive nature of whacking marks, day in, day out and needs a change. As he pursues one target into a drama class in LA, overseen by acting guru Gene Cousineau (the legendary Henry Winkler), Barry becomes smitten with the acting bug – not to mention one of the students.
Can he really cut his criminal ties and pursue this exciting new direction? Or perhaps he can meet both halfway?
The 8 episode series is created by Alec Berg and Bill Hader and also stars Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, Glenn Fleshler, and Anthony Carrigan.
‘Barry‘ comes to Sky Atlantic & NOW TV on Thursday, 26th April 10.45pm.
