HBO Home Entertainment’s Barry: Season 1, starring Bill Hader, will be available for digital download starting June 18.
In addition to Hader (“Saturday Night Live”), cast regulars also include Henry Winkler (“Royal Pains”), Stephen Root (“True Blood”), Sarah Goldberg (“Hindsight”), Glenn Fleshler (“True Detective”) and Anthony Carrigan (“Gotham”).
Barry (Hader) is a depressed hitman from the Midwest, and while on a job in Los Angeles, he follows his mark into an acting class and has a career epiphany when he discovers the intoxicating world of theater acting. Instantly drawn to the class and students, Barry is eager to leave his lonely, cold-hearted job behind, but as he attempts to start a new life in Los Angeles, his criminal ties won’t let him walk away, forcing him to find a balance between both worlds.
Extra content for digital download at participating partners includes the “World of Barry,” in which Winkler and the rest of the cast introduce the ridiculously quirky characters, and “Inside the Episodes,” eight featurettes dissecting each episode with Hader, executive producer Alec Berg, and the rest of the cast and crew.
