Barry returns to Fox Showcase in April

The hit comedy series Barrystarring Emmy Award winners Bill Hader and Henry Winkler, returns for a killer second season in April.

The dark comedy featuring Hader (Saturday Night Live, Trainwreck), who also created and executive produced the series along with Alec Berg (Silicon Valley), focuses on a depressed, low-rent hitman from the Midwest (Hader) who finds salvation in a community theatre group and his acting teacher, played by Henry Winkler.

In season one, Barry’s handler, Fuches (Stephen Root), hires Barry out to the deeply violent Chechen mob in Los Angeles, led by Goran Pazar (Glenn Fleshler). Barry’s target: an aspiring actor having an affair with Pazar’s wife. Barry follows his target into an acting class taught by beloved teacher/guru Gene Cousineau (Winkler), and Barry is instantly drawn to the group of acting students, particularly Sally (Sarah Goldberg). Barry wants to start a new life in this community of eager hopefuls, but his criminal past won’t let him walk away. Can he find a way to balance the two worlds?

The eight episode series also stars Stephen Root, Sarah Goldberg, Glenn Fleshler and Anthony Carrigan.
