    Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader is returning to television as the star of his own series. HBO has ordered Barry, a half-hour comedy pilot, starring, co-written and directed by Hader. The project stems from Hader’s exclusive development deal with HBO.

    Barry, which Hader co-wrote and exec produces with Silicon Valley executive producer Alec Berg, centers on an ex-Marine (Hader) who works as a low-rent hitman in the Midwest. Lonely and dissatisfied in his life he begrudgingly travels to Los Angeles to kill someone and ends up finding an accepting communi
    ty in a group of eager hopefuls within the L.A. theater scene.

    Hader is best known for his eight-season stint on SNL where he was one of the most popular cast members of the past decade, creating such memorable characters as New York club scene expert Stefon. He has earned three Emmy nominations for his work on the venerable NBC sketch comedy show, two as a cast member as one for his stint as host. Hader also wrote for SNL as well as for Comedy Central’s South Park, sharing in an animated program Emmy.

    I would say that we are looking at a fall 2017 release.

    I hope Barry turns out to be really good. HBO hasn’t been coming up with too many outstanding series the last couple years. For example, last summer’s Ballers and The Brink were pitiful. And, on the drama side, The Leftovers is excruciating while the second season of True Detective, making it clear it should have been a one-time miniseries, was devastatingly awful.. HBO is needing to make better programming decisions, to stand out like it used to well above its cable competition, for original comedy and drama series. The 2015 Emmy winners Veep and Game of Thrones—as well as the superb Silicon Valley—will last only so long.
