New BARRY Trailer Indicates HBO May Have Another Hit On Its Hands

We couldn't be more into this if we tried.

We've been eagerly anticipating the arrival of HBO's new comedy, Barry, ever since we heard the show was going into production. Bill Hader leading his own HBO series? And it's a dark comedy where he plays a put-upon hitman? And Henry Winkler's in it? It's hard not to feel like HBO made this show just for us.

Today, then, we're extra excited to have a brand-new trailer for the series, which hits HBO on March 25th. 

Let's take a look.

YUP. We're into everything going on here.

Here's a synopsis, in case the above wasn't clear:

"Barry is a dark comedy starring Bill Hader in the title role of a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest who falls in love with acting while on a job in LA. Barry’s handler, Fuches (Stephen Root), hires him out to the violent Chechen mob in Los Angeles, led by Goran Pazar (Glenn Fleshler) and his right-hand man, Noho Hank (Anthony Carrigan). 

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 (Henry Winkler), and is instantly drawn to the group of students, particularly Sally (Sarah Goldberg). Although he wants to start a new life in this community of eager hopefuls, Barry’s criminal past won’t let him walk away. Can he find a way to balance the two worlds?"

Barry comes to us from Silicon Valley and Curb Your Enthusiasm vet Alec Bergon, who's co-producing the series alongside Hader. We're excited to learn more about this one in the weeks ahead (we might even have a Hader interview headed your way before Barry arrives), so stay tuned for further updates as they roll in.

In the meantime: you folks as into this one as we are? Sound off below.
