Barry is an American dark comedy-crime television series created by Alec Berg and Bill Hader that premiered on HBO on 25 March 2018.
Hader stars as Barry Berkman, a former US Marine and a hitman, from Cleveland who travels to Los Angeles to kill someone but finds himself joining an acting class taught by Gene Cousineau (Henry Winkler), where he meets aspiring actress Sally Reed (Sarah Goldberg) and begins to question his path in life as he deals with his criminal associates such as Monroe Fuches (Stephen Root) and NoHo Hank (Anthony Carrigan).
Fuches returns to the US, visiting the families of Barry’s victims as his PI persona. He gives Barry’s address to both the widow and son of one victim as well as to Ryan Madison’s father. Barry places the Chechens’ bomb in Cristobal’s home to kill Fernando and his men, but his remote detonator app malfunctions. Cristobal returns to the house and is confronted by Fernando, who has learned of his relationship with Hank. Cristobal refuses to cooperate and escapes right as Barry’s phone connects and detonates the bomb, injuring Cristobal. Barry returns Cristobal to Hank, who pays him. Gene prepares to flee LA with Leo and his grandson, but learns from his agent that his reputation has vastly improved after his mentorship of Barry was publicized. After Joplin’s premiere – which Barry misses due to his job with Hank – Katie warns Sally that her relationship with Barry is abusive. Barry visits Gene to give him the money he received from Hank, promising to stay out of his life. Barry then visits Sally outside the premiere, where Sally breaks up with him. Elsewhere, the widow, Julie, and her son Kyle purchase a firearm to kill Barry.
