EP_Box Sets_Barry S1_June 19
Disillusioned at the thought of taking down another "mark," depressed, low-level hit man Barry Berkman seeks a way out. When the Midwesterner reluctantly travels to Los Angeles to execute a hit on an actor who is bedding a mobster's wife, little does Barry know that the City of Angels may be his sanctuary. He follows his target into acting class and ends up instantly drawn to the community of eager hopefuls, especially dedicated student Sally, who becomes the object of his affection. While Barry wants to start a new life as an actor, the hit man's criminal past won't let him walk away so easily.
“Let me just declare how far over the moon I am about Barry, a funny, violent, gripping and masterfully melancholy half-hour show created by Hader... From start to finish, it’s just one hell of a show.” – Washington Post
“Barry not only shifts from comedy to drama convincingly and at the drop of a hat, but it dispenses various shades of each so that all eight episodes hold together as a grounded, honest story with a long road ahead. Bill Hader and Alec Berg’s series is highly entertaining and acutely heart-breaking, and that’s pretty damn special.” – IndieWire
Starring Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live), Stephen Root (The Man in the High Castle), Anthony Carrigan (Gotham), and Henry Winkler (Arrested Development).
Season 1 box set starts 7.30pm Saturday 28th September
