(Bill Hader)

M-Net (Channel 101) will feature the start of the series Barry, on April 27 at 22h00.

Emmy-winner Bill Hader stars in this dark comedy, about a depressed hitman who decides to pursue an acting career, despite not being able to leave his criminal past behind.

Disillusioned at the thought of taking down another "mark," low-level hit man Barry Berkman seeks a way out. When the Midwesterner reluctantly travels to Los Angeles to execute a hit on an actor who is bedding a mobster's wife, little does Barry know that the City of Angels may be his sanctuary. He follows his target into acting class and ends up instantly drawn to the community of eager hopefuls, especially dedicated student Sally, who becomes the object of his affection.

While Barry wants to start a new life as an actor, his handler, Fuches, has other ideas, and the hit man's criminal past won't let him walk away so easily. The film also stars Sarah Goldberg, ‎Alec Berg, ‎Stephen Root and ‎Anthony Carrigan.
