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 directs a biker gang led by Taylor’s sister Traci to go after Barry. One of the members shoots Fuches and leaves him for dead in the desert; Fuches is tended to by a kindly family that lets him stay with them, but Fuches remains insistent on bringing down Barry. He steals the family’s truck and contacts Moss’s father Jim. Sally reluctantly accepts a writing job on a different BanShe series. Gene’s agent offers him the opportunity to teach a MasterClass acting course; Gene agrees so long as Annie is involved, and offers her the full profits. Albert suggests someone with a military background was involved in Fernando’s assassination, and decides to visit Chris’ widow Sharon to inquire about Barry. Sharon invites Barry to a dinner that night; on his way there, Barry is attacked by Traci’s gang and steals one of their bikes to escape them. At Sharon’s, Barry notices Fuches’s PI card on her table and realises too late that Sharon has poisoned his food, her invitation a ruse to avenge Chris’ death.
