FRIDAYS FROM 6 APRIL 10.00PM
Can an awkward but talented hitman who wants to act balance both worlds?
Saturday Night Live alumni Bill Hader stars as a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest who falls in love with acting while on a job in LA.
Barry’s handler, Fuches, hires him out to the violent Chechen mob in Los Angeles, led by Goran Pazar and his right-hand man, Noho Hank. Barry’s target: an aspiring actor who is having an affair with Pazar’s wife. Barry follows his “mark” into an acting class taught by beloved teacher/guru Gene Cousineau and is instantly drawn to the group of students, particularly Sally. Although he wants to start a new life in this community of eager hopefuls, Barry’s criminal past won’t let him walk away.
As well as starring in the series, Hader directs episodes of the deadpan comedy, marking his directorial debut.
Starring Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live), Stephen Root (Get Out), Sarah Goldberg (The Dark Knight Rises), Glenn Fleshler (True Detective), Anthony Carrigan (Gotham) and Henry Winkler (Arrested Development).
